Rachel Caddy debuts her first single for 2020 with the melodic and charming ‘Trams’. As with her previous material, ‘Trams’ is a great example of the folk songwriter’s talent for storytelling and arrangement.
A natural performer, Caddy’s latest is a step further into a new chapter of creativity – the first of more new music fans can expect to hear as this year rolls out.
With a sound akin to the likes of Gretta Ray and Ainslie Wills, Rachel Caddy is aligning herself with some of Melbourne’s best talent. ‘Trams’ is another great addition to her growing body of work.
The warmth and honesty threaded throughout ‘Trams’ speaks of Caddy’s experiences in exploring connections and relationships. Growing through these experiences herself, ‘Tram’s is a reflection as much as it is a creative expression.
“I was reflecting on a past break up and I started looking outwards and wondering what the people around me were going through. Being on public transport is a unique experience; you can be right next to someone without making any contact or knowing anything about them. I wanted to reflect on that disconnectedness while also expressing the ache of missing a real connection with someone.” Rachel Caddy
Hailing from Central Victoria, Caddy’s music has been charming audiences since ‘Blue Sky Soda Stream’ introduced the young artist to music fans in 2017. Releasing her debut EP Missing Screws in 2019, Caddy’s delicate yet powerful music has been establishing her as an artist to watch in Melbourne’s thriving songwriter circles.
To celebrate the release of ‘Trams’, Rachel Caddy will be performing a special show in Melbourne at The Gasometer Hotel. An opportunity for fans to see what music she has been working on, and an opportunity for newcomers to be welcomed into the fold, the show is a must-see for Melbourne indie folk lovers.
