Irish powerhouse Erica-Cody makes a return with melodic, empowering release “Love like this,” drawing inspiration from a year spent in the spotlight, exposed to intrusions, assumptions and infatuations.
With an infectious and sultry R&B instrumentation grounded by Erica’s powerful yet vulnerable vocals, the track matches a feel-good rhythm to an encouraging, self-confident message.
Co-written by Richey McCourt, the song began to come to life after Erica’s stint on Dancing With The Stars, capturing the onslaught of intrusions into her private life as a public figure.
Lyrically, it reminds us that as hard as it can be not to listen and be affected by people’s opinions of you, you need to shake it off and move ahead in life. Inspired by Erica’s own experience with fame, the personal offering sees her handle judgment with poise and grace, urging us to follow her lead.
At only 26 years, the rising talent captures maturity beyond her years through her positive musicianship, framed by an ability to mould her life experiences into vulnerable yet empowering snippets that anyone listening can relate to.
After a year of impressive highs from Dancing With The Stars to TV show The Main Stage on the national broadcaster RTE 1 with Danny O’Reilly of The Coronas, performing to a full Heiniken Big Top tent at Indiependence in Cork and much more, Erica who has already established herself as an unstoppable force continues her ascent into stardom.
