London based singer/songwriter CARMODY today releases new single ‘Trespasser’, the latest taster of upcoming debut album, ‘Imperfect Constellations’ out 6th July via Young Poet, which will feature collaborations with artists including Alfa Mist, Tom Misch, Conor Albert, and Laura Misch.
Carmody has long been using music as a way to uncover her subconscious, examining the complex web of relationships that surround her. Rich in detail and emotional substance, her music evokes the timelessness of Joni Mitchell and Joan Armatrading while nodding to the modern alt-folk of Laura Marling and Big Thief. In the face of memory and generational grief, ‘Imperfect Constellations’ is split into four main parts (or ‘Constellations’) and draws on her own experiences of alternative therapy, entering a world of discovery and recognition.
Co-written with and produced by Young Poet label-mate Conor Albert, ‘Trespasser’ merges captivating folk songwriting with modern production flourishes to stunning effect; written about relationships that leave a lasting imprint on you: “I can’t forgive my mind / summons you at night”
Speaking more on the lyrical meaning behind the track, Carmody said: “It’s about the frustration you feel when your body still remembers, despite the passing of time. Even if you would like to forget them, there is always a constant pull towards their memory. I took this track to Conor Albert who produced it and added some beautiful piano lines that really brought the track to life.”
Carmody’s debut album ‘Imperfect Constellations’ follows her previously released EPs: 2020’s ‘My Jupiter’, 2019’s ‘Catching Blue’, 2018’s ‘Five Kinds Of Loveless’, debut solo EP ‘Skin’ in 2016.
