Our very first encounters with Carmody were her sublime collaborations with Tom Misch, but we’ve been duly enamored by the South Londoner’s solo music, too. With over 30 million streams to date, Carmody now takes a bold step into new musical territory with Singing Your Love, reportedly a staple at her sold out live shows. It’s an uptempo ode to infatuation and romantic obsession, an electronica meets soulful pop dazzler with an expansive sonic palette crafted out of fine textures and sweetly soulful vocals. Singing Your Love is a bit like Oh Wonder gone more snazzy sophisticated electro. Of the inspiration behind her new 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.” Those in the UK can catch Carmody on tour this month. She’ll also be performing at Barn On The Farm Festival and Wilderness Festival this summer.
