Known to listeners worldwide for her bittersweet electronic ballads and folk-tinged storytelling, ‘Singing Your Love’ sees Carmody – in collaboration with rising producer Courage (Ray BLK, Stormzy) and mixer Tim Rowkins (Mura Masa, Two Door Cinema Club) – experimenting with new sounds and rhythms that wouldn’t sound out of place at the Rio Carnival. Hitting festival main stages for the first time across the UK this summer, Carmody’s ‘Singing Your Love’ is sure to get feet moving and hearts breaking as new audiences experience this most unique of artists for the first time.
Carmody has sold out all three of her London headline shows to date (at The Waiting Room, Omeara and Bussey Building), and recently completed a highly successful debut headline tour in European. Alongside a short run of UK regional headline dates in Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol, her next London show will be at the legendary Bush Hall on May 24. Confirmed festivals include Main Stage appearances at Wilderness, World Island Festival and Barn On The Farm, a set at Liverpool Sound City and a headline show at The Great Escape.
Of the inspiration behind her next single, Carmody says: “‘Singing Your Love’ feels like my first love song. I read somewhere that songwriters are always documenting each phase of their lives through their music. I had never thought of it like that before, but it felt important to write about a moment beyond the battles that can exist when you fall in love. I’ve always struggled to write about happiness without stumbling into cliché, but it felt like something worth celebrating, something worth dancing about, beyond the scrutiny that I usually put my relationships under. It also came from a conversation I had on the Are We Live podcast, where I started talking about how there are no songs that objectify men, no videos with men washing cars in little cute boxers. So it also stemmed from a desire to see and write about the male form as a muse and sexual object.”
