The summer vibes are oozing out of this bad
boy girl and, to top it off, Cara’s even made us the CUTEST music video to go along with it. <3
CARA HAMMOND, Leeds-based singer-songwriter, has released this cracker. And I can tell you it’s a cracker because, it’s been stuck in my head since my first listen!
Cara is an extremely talented lady with her head AND heart deep in the world of song-writing. Backed by her amazingly talented band, she seems set to take over your radios this summer with the aptly named ‘Addictive’.
This track has definitely got a Paolo Nutini/Amy Winehouse vibe to it, with the soulful vocals, brass stabs and driving drum parts. The backing-vocals do a great job of filling the song with colour and perfectly compliment Cara’s catchy hooks. The music video, filmed in northern Italy, is exactly what you’d imagine when listening to the song alone.
‘Addictive’ will be featured on Cara’s upcoming EP titled ‘Ray’, and us here at Girls That Gig can’t wait to get our hands on a copy! Be sure to go out and get yours when it’s released on the 6th of October 2016.
Here are the wonderful people who teamed together to make this track such a belter:
Luke Hamlin – Bass
Rob Oates – Drums
Pete Woodin – Guitar
Kieran Williams – Piano
Alex Chivers, Alice Lloyd & Freya White – Brass
Hannah Slavin & Joe Yates – Backing Vocals
Lotte van den Berg & Harrison Stanford- Producer
Jake Pollard – Film Producer (edited by Cara)
We can’t wait to get Cara on the podcast to talk about how she wrote this track!
