Cara Hammond Reveals Trance Inducing New Single ‘Ready For The Fall’

“Gossamer pop music within an electronic landscape” by Clash.  Ready For The Fall’, released January 31st, is Cara Hammond’s first release of 2020, showing a taste of what’s to come for the soul-inspired, singer-songwriter. The song (written in Stockholm with talented writers Tom Goren and Caroline Ljungstrom) is a cinematic blend of pop and soul, featuring soaring strings over a vinyl crackle and deep bass, that when combined with Cara’s unique vocal, create the perfect setting for a new decade.

Cara Hammond Reveals Trance Inducing New Single ‘Ready For The Fall’

Of the single, Cara said: “Being in your twenties is difficult and confusing as hell. There are so many life changes, paths to choose, and heartbreaks to endure which help you figure out who you are. ‘Ready For The Fall’ sums up those feelings in asking yourself if you’re ready to take those chances. It’s everyone’s inner monologue, where our mind is split between taking a leap of faith or playing it safe. It’s a way to protect ourselves from getting hurt, 'cause life’s a bitch.”

‘Ready For The Fall' also reflects Cara's battle with the music industry as an up and coming singer-songwriter. As an artist, you have to throw everything you’ve got into the unknown, so this song is Cara’s way of checking in with herself. Just a quick “you got this”.

The reveal of the single comes with the announcement of two new London shows, where Cara will be playing with her full band, at The Water Rats on January 10th and The Bedford on January 21st. In addition to these, Cara’s first festival appearances for 2020 have just been announced. Cara will play Focus, Wales on 9th May, and Lowde Charity Festival in Hampshire on 11th July.

This year’s previous singles ‘Good Times’, ‘Try To Love You’, ‘How I Feel’ and ‘Such A Mess’ picked up support from no less than 11 New Music Friday playlists on Spotify around the world - an incredible achievement for a brand new, independent British artist. She was also featured in BBC Introducing’s Hotlist for 2019.

Cara describes her music as soulful indie-pop, taking influence from her favorite artists, such as Lianne La Havas, Dua Lipa, Amy Winehouse, Paolo Nutini, and Ben Howard. Originally from North Wales, she is now based in London and has been writing and performing songs since she was 11 years old.
