Carmody Releases Two New Songs “Memory” and “Still”
- London-based singer-songwriter Carmody will release her debut album “Imperfect Constellations” on July 6, 2022.
From the album, she unveiled two new songs “Memory” and “Still” on November 24, 2021.
She teamed up with British producer Alfa Mist and London-based saxophonist Laura Misch on “Memory”.
Carmody said of the song, “This song was written with Alfa Mist, we wanted to create a record exploring the concept of 'memory' and although it was never released, I recently contacted him and asked if I could use this song for my album. It is a song about carrying your memories with you and making them a part of your every day, in spite of the people or things you lose along the way. Laura Misch is playing a beautiful sax line in the chorus, which really brought the piece to life.”
“Still” was written by Avi Barath, Calum Duncan and Carmody.
She said of “Still”, “'Still' is the first song I wrote with the ever-talented Calum Duncan and Avi Barath. I hounded them for a session after I saw their incredible band play quite a few years ago and we've created so much together since. They also produced 'memory'.”
The two songs are part of “Constellation A” of the debut album, along with the previous song “Replace”.
She said, “Constellation A explores the multi-faceted concept of 'memory', as I examine how to remember, and keep sacred the things and people that are lost, without feeling a bitterness for what I no longer have. When my grandfather was diagnosed with dementia 5 years ago I watched his stories and his sense of self slowly disappear. It was surreal to me that I still had the past we shared together, but he had no recollection of it. In 'Still' I wanted to write about how his sense of self could be found through me and my memories of us together. Although these 3 songs are some of the oldest on the record, they orbit the world I currently inhabit, and as each constellation is released I'll move further into the centre of things and where it all began.”
