The highly anticipated full-length LP is due out in a few week's time.
Limerick-born, Dublin-based experimental folk artist Ev Carm has been working away on his debut album for what feels like a long time. Today, Hot Press is proud to premiere Carm's stunning sophomore single 'Looking For You', which will feature on the record along with his debut release, 'Laugh Again'.
Meditative and textured, 'Looking For You' sees the singer-songwriter continue his experimentation with fractured perspectives and layered production. Managing to maintain his distinctive warmth, Carm's yearning vocal paves the way for a cavernous, expansive melancholy.
“I tried to create a murky atmosphere on this track," Carm notes in a statement. "This song, along with the rest of this record, was made at a point in my life were I wasn’t sure who I was or what I was doing. I had taken a break from music and moved away from Dublin, and when I moved back I spent a lot of time reflecting on both the kind of person and artist I wanted to be. I started to question the decisions I had made and the life I was living at the time, and why, and didn’t really find any answers, so I tried to capture that feeling on “Looking For You”.
Listen to the song below.
