In The Spotlight

Cara Hammond – “Try To Love You”

Music has been prevalent in the life of this Welsh-born singer and songwriter from an early age, writing her own songs at 11 and graduating from Leeds College Of Music. Since then she’s opened for Charlotte Church, released several EP’s and played over 100 gigs throughout Europe. Describing her music as soulful indie-pop, she’s inspired by artists like Amy Winehouse, Paolo Nutini and Dua Lipa.

The second teaser from her upcoming EP “Nice Girl”, to be released later in the year, is an incredibly catchy, honey-sweet pop tune. The addictive chorus with upbeat, plucky guitars and vitalizing bass line has a cheery, summery vibe. Despite singing about a relationship with a no-good partner, her edgy, yet virtuous vocals shine over this uplifting bit of sunbeamy indie-pop, which is easy to love.
