Carmody – Singing Your Love

Carmody is making waves and after hearing her new song “Singing Your Love” it makes sense. Her voice is unique and balanced, transitioning from the soft verse to the anthemic chorus with excellent control and power. The production is light with a guitar and synth moving the verses/choruses with a consistent percussion pallet made up of shakers/claps/sticks.

This song is dynamic and carefully heartfelt, defining and moving from section to section with deft artistic deliberation. “Singing Your Love” is a perfect entry point for new fans into Carmody’s awesome discography and a powerful new single for returning fans.

In her words:
“‘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.” -Carmody
