OUT TODAY: Carmody Shares Single, ‘Trespasser’

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. Her 2014 collaborative EP ‘Out to Sea’ with Tom Misch – accumulating over 70 million streams along the way, securing strong press (Notion Magazine, Clash Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, Dummy, LISTEN Magazine + more), radio airplay from BBC R1 (Jack Saunders, Sian Eleri), 6Music and BBC R2, alongside huge support from Spotify and Apple Music.

Song of the Day: Past The Evening – Michael Baker

Following singles ‘One God Damn’ and ‘Baby Books’, the Bright-based artist MICHAEL BAKER reveals another piece of empathic songwriting in ‘Past The Evening’ from his forthcoming album, ‘Salt’ out next year.

This time around, not only are we treated to the Anglo-French musician’s serene soundscape, but also his authentic performance style which shows Baker as someone deeply connected to his craft. Sonically rich throughout, ‘Past The Evening’ is connected to one of Baker’s personal life moments.

Speaking of the intimate release, Baker says: “I remember that feeling of listening to vinyl records and how an album can fill a room. In this song I talk about listening to ‘Ring Of Fire’ by Johnny Cash in my university days as it was one of the first vinyls I got at an old charity shop. The music industry can feel like an uphill struggle, but this track is about remembering why I got into music in the first place, a reminder to sow down enough to keep enjoying the process. This song is my realisation that I don’t think I’ll ever stop making music. Maybe not for everyone else, but just for me.”

Song of the Day: Remember – LA Sabree (ft. Adonai)

‘Remember’ is LA SABREE’s attempt at a love song. Growing up, LA recalls most of his favorite hip-hop albums containing a romantic record or two specifically for female listeners to vibe to. During a listening session, his friend told him he was missing that exact type of song. Ever the perfectionist, Sabree vowed to make it happen.

Once he heard the beat by Producer GHXST, he sought out to bring the idea to fruition. However, he ended up creating something else entirely…

‘Remember’ is an anthem for men reminiscing about their old flames – and more importantly and specifically that woman it just didn’t work out with despite everything lining up like it would. In the record, LA SABREE recounts the vibes, moments and conversations he had with a girlfriend who professed her love for him. By the end all he has left are the pictures in his phone.

‘Remember’ is available on all major streaming platforms…check it out below..
