Taura Lamb has shared her new single Crybaby, the latest release in her Moods project, a series of four themed EPs.
Crybaby comes after Taura Lamb landed her first Radio 1 airplay from Mollie King for Lucky, and scooping more than a million streams for Talk.
The track features on her ongoing Moods project, which will eventually feature four EPs shaped around themes of Tetchy, Teary, Sultry and Sunny. Crybaby marks an offer of support to someone in a moment of vulnerability. Taura Lamb wrote the track and co-produced it alongside Swoope.
Speaking about Crybaby, Taura Lamb said, “I’m someone who cries at everything – be it a wedding, a funeral or a John Lewis Christmas advert, you best believe I will be tearing up. This song is about a time when I felt I needed to mask the crybaby in me a little, it was time for me to be somebody else’s rock and let them cry all the tears. It’s saying ‘I’m going to be so strong in this moment, for once, so that you can completely and utterly collapse if you need to. I’ll be here to talk it out at any time, on any day, and you are allowed to break down, I’ve got you.’”
The song will feature on the Teary EP which will bring together the most emotional songs within the project. The final collection is expected to land next summer. Taura added regarding Moods, “The project explores the four most prominent moods I’ve embodied whilst writing this new set of work, and experience on a day-to-day basis. Essentially, it will become a deconstructed album, one that is pre-organised for you – simply reach out and play the ‘mood’ you’re feeling that day. With music stretching from the purest R&B to super pop, each EP will be accompanied by a ‘mood’ visualiser, creatively depicting the sensations of each emotion.”
