Track: Hollie Carmen – Never Been Kissed

Hollie Carmen makes a triumphant return to the music scene after a four-year hiatus with her highly anticipated new single, ‘Never Been Kissed’, from her upcoming 5 Track EP, (produced and co-written by Billy Adamson) and is the start of a compelling new chapter for her. “Meeting Billy was a godsend, he understood me and my vision and brought it to life.”

Drawing inspiration from the 1960s, Hollie seeks to recapture the essence of that time – from the romanticism and unfiltered honesty found in the lyrics to the rawness heard in the recordings. It is a deliberate choice to blend nostalgia with stories of modern-day dating, creating a soundscape that blends the past and present effortlessly.

Regarding the track Carmen comments:

“‘Never Been Kissed’ is about the impact falling in love has on me. I am impulsive, I dive straight in and I don’t think. In the relationship explored in this song, I felt entirely intoxicated by the addictive chemicals going off in my brain, it felt like fireworks were exploding! It turned me into a teenager and made me forget about any previous hurt I had experienced,”

Never Been Kissed marks a pivotal moment in Hollies career.

“I have made a promise to myself to only make the music that I would listen to. I spent so long trying to please everyone that I disconnected from myself entirely. It was unsustainable and ultimately forced me to reassess my artistic direction. The past few years have been a transformative time for me. I’ll be two years sober, and that journey has allowed me to discover who I really am and how to show that to the world.

Warm caramel vocals mix with catchy guitars to give a unique laidback and delightful track that you can’t help but fall in love with. Sweet backing vocals add to the bittersweet vibe that the lyrics bring smoothly layered over the twin guitar doo-wop. It’s good to live in a world where Hollie Carmen is making music.
