Karmacoda Shares Alluring Single, ‘Dare’ Ahead Of Album, ‘Lessons In Time.’

Elegant USA-based band KARMACODA shared their song ‘Dare’, which is taken from their latest album, Lessons In Time, via Sola Musa Music.

In the spirit of love, Karmacoda’s impassioned songstress Jessica Ford makes her desire known in the single, as she risks it all and takes the leap. Jazz-inspired instruments entice, while each word teases, calling a lover to action. Jessica brings the track together with her seductive vocals, making its final destination a sweet embrace.

Discussing the LP, the band’s on vocals and producer, Brett Crockett (aka B) says: “We began writing Lesson in Time immediately after the completion of the album before it (Slow Down, Melt and Catch Fire) which dealt with the uncertainty of the early parts of the pandemic. Lessons in Time is about both looking forward to what the future will be and simultaneously looking back at what we once had, what we loved, and what we lost. Themes of time and flying and the need for emotional personal connections emerged, unconsciously, but they were obvious once the album was done.”

Having been placed in several film and TV scores, the three-piece band has won several awards including the Hermes Creative Awards (Platinum) for the ‘Lo-Fi Girl’ video and ‘Make Me The One’ video which also earned one Unglued Music Video (Gold) and three Davey Awards for Video Entertainment, Best Use of Music and Art Direction (all Silver). Based in San Francisco, USA, KARMACODA is comprised of Jessica Ford (vocals), Brett Crockett (aka B. on vocals and producer) and Japanese-American multi-instrumentalist Eric Matsuno (bass and other unique elements). The trio’s sound has been compared to a unique mix of Paloma Faith, Adele, and Pixie Lott.

‘Dare’ follows their video for ‘Time Flies’ , which clocked up over 12K views since its release last month.

Song of the Day: Fly By – KARMACODA

Comprising of Jessica Ford (vocals), Brett Crockett (aka B. on vocals and producer) and Japanese-American multi-instrumentalist Eric Matsuno (bass and other unique elements), electronic trio KARMACODA‘s single, ‘Fly By’ is what contemplative dreams are made of as we find ourselves floating along on Jessica’s sophisticated vocals. The sprinkling of sassy lyrics carried along on melodic piano notes lead the way into the impressively deep rhythmic rolling tones while a summery touch brings the single together as each refreshing note lightly lands on the pallet.

Jessica of KARMACODA tells us about the meaning behind ‘Fly By’: “Our latest single is about ending a relationship and washing your hands clean of it, without regret or remorse. Knowing it’s over and cutting the tie with peace in your heart and mind. Putting wings on it and watching it fly off into the universe never to be tested or tried again. It’s over. Without tears, you exhale, smile and release it into the world and “let it go”. You’ve done all you can. You’ve had the break ups, you’ve had the “try agains”, you’ve done the get back togethers. No more. You are ready to set it free and watch it ‘Fly By’.”

The band has also earned several awards including the Hermes Creative Awards (Platinum) for the ‘Lo-Fi Girl’ video and ‘Make Me The One’ video which also earned one Unglued Music Video (Gold) and three Davey Awards for Video Entertainment, Best Use of Music and Art Direction (all Silver).

Zola Shares Magical Single, ‘Glitter And The Gold’

The San Franciscan rising star, ZOLA‘s first single off her forthcoming EP, ‘Glitter and The Gold’, speaks of the singer/songwriter’s hesitancy to move to Southern California.

“‘Glitter and the Gold’ was written directly after a phone call with someone telling me that if I didn’t move to Los Angeles I would never be successful… “Glitter and the Gold” flooded out of me in less than an hour. I wanted this song to be about how family, community, and knowing yourself are more important than going to any party or signing any deal because the money looks appealing. It’s about knowing who is on your team and making sure they genuinely believe in your authentic self and art. I want to work with people who know me because knowing me is understanding the music I make.” – ZOLA.
