South London’s electronic-soul songstress, Carmody, unveils her second single from her forthcoming album Catching Blue. Teaming up with songwriter and producer Rahm Silverglade, “Summer Rain” encapsulates the depth of Carmody’s pivotal words and angelic vocals to a multi-dimensional realm of the first stages of love. Pulling traits from R&B and deep house, “Summer Rain” is a soundscape of poetic musings.
“I’m a big romantic when it comes to rain in the summer time,” explains Carmody. “There’s something about the heat, coupled with a fleeting downpour of rain, that I love. It’s momentary and beautiful. ‘Summer Rain’ is about those ephemeral moments when you fall in love; when there is no doubt – just pure elation – lost in each other’s minds and bodies.”
Tuned to a pulsated heart beat, deep bass-tronics cascade slowly, mimicking the very drops Carmody croons about. The track is carried by Carmody’s vivid words and breaths life into the track’s intent, stirring emotions: “We move unhurt / A hope that time could never change.” Cinematic and expansive keys cling to a gorgeous hook and revive the romantic in all of us.
