Erica Cody has followed up the smooth R&B pop track ‘Good Intentions’ with a video that demonstrates the Dubliner’s desire to be more than just a singer, showing off her dance moves and camera awareness with ease in this video by Tim Hood with choreography: by Sophie Kavanagh & Ellen Fitzpatrick.
21-year-old singer, songwriter and producer from Dublin Erica Cody made her musical debut last year with ‘Addicted’.
Her latest release ‘Good Intentions’ is the first release from her five-track EP Leoness which is set for release later this year and deals with issues such as finding herself in music, love and being asked ‘Where are you really from?’.
The track has a catchy R&B-electronica melody with soulful vocals and an old-school nostalgia vibe.
Now the song has a video made by Tim Hood that is as slick as the song. Cody is one of a few performers alongside Mango, Jess Kav and Jafaris performing at The Story of Hip Hop with DJ Mo K and the RTE concert Orchestra on The Rankins Wood Stage at Electric Picnic.
WOB! are a live drum’n’bass electronic band from Dublin (who want to make you ‘Move’) who for their latest track have hooked up with upcoming R&B singer Erica Cody (as featured here) on ‘Higher’, a song that heralds the start of summer.
Erica Cody is a Dublin singer/songwriter and producer who has been writing songs since she was seven-years-old.
Now 20 and studying at BIMM Dublin, Cody is emerging as one of the new generation of soulful R&B singers coming up in the Irish scene, as seen at Hard Working Class Heroes last year.
‘Addicted’ is Cody’s debut single proper, to be released on Friday, a R&B pop song which has the same DNA as some of yesterday’s ’90s R&B playlist (SWV, Boys II Men ) but ‘Addicted’ is a modern electronic-production assisted take on that sound.
