Anna Carmody to Release Captivating Summer Single ‘Summer Air’

May 31, 2021

Anna is a singer-songwriter who hails from Tullamore, Co. Offaly. A newcomer in the music scene, Anna surprisingly just wrote her first song in December 2019 but she has quickly gained traction with over 5,000 active fans on her Facebook page in just 6 months. Collectively Anna has received over 85k views on her music videos on Facebook with over 31k views on her debut single ‘Million Pieces’. Anna’s tracks are produced and mixed with Irish music producer Robert McLeod (Universal, Grapevine Records, B*witched) and worked with the likes of Alex Gordan (Kate Nash, Sigrid) at the world famous studio Abbey Road, when mastering her debut album.

Anna is influenced by artists such as Lana Del Rey, Norah Jones, Dolores O’Riordan and her favourite band Villagers. She crafts her music with traces of indie-pop combining a stripped-back intimate blend with emotionally explosive elements to the delivery of her music. Anna’s music has been described as beautifully haunting, touching the hearts of many with lyrics inspired by heartbreak, love, death, loss, friendship, adventure and other strong life subjects. Anna draws inspiration from the people and life moments that struck a chord with her the most.

Anna talks about her second release ‘Summer Air’, out 4th June:

‘Summer Air’ was written shortly after I moved home at the start of the pandemic to the quiet countryside of Offaly. I was living right in the hectic scene of Dublin City. I felt a sense of relief to be in a peaceful and quiet environment but I was still carrying the heavy weight of heartbreak and loss that I brought back from Dublin. I climbed up the Slieve Bloom Mountains with a friend and when I got back to my bedroom I picked up the guitar and it was as though the words and melody came directly from the mountains. It’s probably the most naturey song I wrote. It has an air of happiness and freedom to it but there is always that underlying haunting feeling to my songs. I carry a lot of emotions and that shows in my music. It’s how I release them. I have a lot of stories to tell and this song is just one of many more to come.
