London electronic artist Carmody is known for folk-tinged electronic ballads but is pursuing a new direction with her bright new single ‘Singing Your Love’. In collaboration with producer Courage (Ray BLK, Stromzy) and mixer Tim Rowkins (Two Door Cinema Club), Carmody has been experimenting with new sounds and rhythms to create her first love song as well as exploring the unbalanced sexual objectification of men and women. This summer, Carmody will be playing her first festivals this summer across the UK including Wilderness, World Island Festival and Barn On The Farm and The Great Escape. She’s currently undertaking a short run of UK regional headline dates throughout this month.

Carmody revealed her influences behind ‘Singing Your Love’: “‘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.”
