"Hurricane", the latest track by London-based singer Carmody, is a moving composition inspired by the artist's grandmother.
The indie-folk-inspired tune carries a gentle melancholic atmosphere, formed with the help of delicate guitar works, poignant strings, touching lyrics and Carmody's delicate vocals. The artist elaborates:
My Grandma once told me that she doesn't dream and that if she does, it’s not in colour. I was just like wow, that line has to go in a song...We have a strange relationship because she's quite a difficult, but very loveable woman. She’s quite rude, she's really crass, she's got a lot of love but she can't often feel it. It's about me trying to get through to her, but also recognising that I feel like I am quite like her. I wouldn’t call it depression, but I struggle with sadness, and there’s a lot of sadness that she's had in her family that she's just carried. That hurricane feeling; I feel like I carry some of that too.
"Hurricane" precedes her upcoming debut album Imperfect Constellations. Out this July via Young Poet, the album features collaborations with Alfa Mist, Tom Misch, Conor Albert, and Laura Misch, so stay tuned.
