Cammy and Will McClean Join Forces on Cruisy Summer Jam ‘Band-Aid’
September 23rd 2022
Summer vibes are established from the first beat of Cammy's new single 'Band-Aid', featuring Will McClean. The track combines a Motown-esque feel with horns, and cunning cadences, held down by a live groove.
'Band-Aid’ depicts a story of a complicated romance. It's a feel-good but bittersweet track, and through Cammy's lens it's a reminder that every cloud has a silver lining, while Will McClean’s storytelling mixes up the flow.
Cammy says, “Me and Will are childhood mates, raised in the same hometown. We’ve both been coming up on this music grind together. It feels so full circle to finally share this one with the world.:"
“I was inspired by something Pharrell Williams said on a podcast. “Chords are co-ordinance.” This means chords take you places emotionally. In the final month of production, I changed the voicings of the chords in the wobbly synth to feel more sombre. This edit flipped the emotion that was evoked into a more saudade realm.”
