Dublin R&B artist Erica Cody drops infectious single “Back to Basics”—a raw and honest production exploring how simple love and infatuation can be. The ballad-style track highlights Cody’s melodic vocals cushioned by a rich synth-tinged soundscape embedded in a classic '90s R&B musicality.
With a sensuous and stylish vibe, the track takes the concept of love back to basics, reminding us that relationships don’t need to be as complex as we imagine it to be and that “ignoring outside noise,” will help keep things sweet and simple in love. She says, “Nothing needs to be complicated when you can keep it simple. Love can be complicated but only if we make it that way.”
Cody’s bold musicality showcases a much-needed positive outlook, infused with self-confidence and assurance. Giving us a stunning glimpse of her forthcoming EP, Cody has quickly built herself up to become a leading figure in the Irish music scene.
Not only delivering cheerful soundscapes framed by lush instrumentals but also offering stripped-back, message-heavy sonic outings, on the other hand, the rising star was an integral part of Irish Women In Harmony, orchestrated by Grammy-nominated artist RuthAnne Cunningham.
The collaborative release of The Cranberries’ ‘Dreams’ which saw 40 of Ireland’s leading female artists come together to work towards ending end domestic abuse and coercive control in Ireland, honed Cody's ability to inspire her listeners. With an unrivaled work ethic and consistent artistic evolution that has seen her deliver chart-topping offerings, the polished track is a taster of everything to come for the singer whose career is on the rise, powered by her open-hearted, ambient music.
