Today Sody teams up with Cavetown on their latest single “Is Your Bedroom Ceiling Bored?” With an accompanying video featuring the all too familiar feeling of a claustrophobic space , the single tells a story of isolation — something we all can relate to during this time. With both UK artists on the rise, the collaboration beautifully showcases their emotional connection and musicianship.
“Is Your Bedroom Ceiling Bored?” is for my fellow overthinkers,” she explains. “It’s when you’re staring at your ceiling at 4am looking for answers and wondering what someone is thinking. It’s when you write paragraphs to someone over text but then delete it and respond ‘I’m okay’. I imagine so many of us are experiencing this in isolation which unites us all!” Sody has been building a strong discography of tracks that consistently show incredible attention to lyricism that’s honest & in some cases courageous when speaking-up about tough subjects like bullying. This honesty has built a deep relationship with her fast growing legion of followers. There’s also an enviable vocal range that can soar at times yet feel so delicate at other moments.
The collaboration with Cavetown is a meeting of two artists with different sounds who connect on their similar astute emotional intelligence when it comes to songwriting. Both artists began releasing music at age 14. Now aged 21 he’s become one of the leaders of internet music culture garnering 1.4 million Youtube subscribers & 250 million Spotify plays alone and playing sold-out headline performances at venues like Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre, New York City’s Webster Hall, and London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Cavetown adds “I love the lyrics and production of this song so I was excited to work on it. I don’t typically write songs like this so it was intriguing to dip my toes into a track that had a bit more of a pop vibe. Getting to know Sody throughout the process was a major bonus as she’s super cool and fun to work with!”
The four white walls which the pair trade off about in this new version of the track certainly know all of this and more. Unconscious confidants and the keepers of more secrets than we wish to reveal, “Is Your Bedroom Ceiling Bored?” looks at the sanctuary and sympathy this space offers.
