The perfect reflection of Cammy Enaharo’s “Real Love”
The lead single from Cammy Enaharo’s new EP Hard To Look At is about lingering at the end of a relationship and what it’s really like to move on in the aftermath. It’s a song coated in strokes of reflection and regret, wanting to hold onto the good moments of a failed relationship but stuck without that apology or sense of closure. The melancholy track is rooted in acoustic simplicity through the guitar but simultaneously layered alongside intimate harmonies, Enaharo’s rich, warm vocal tones, and steady drumming.
As the song progresses, Enaharo grows older and builds a new life, finding a career and a fresh direction. Still, she waits for that apology, much to her own self-disappointment. Finally, she ends the track by urging others to give up on waiting, and as the sound of a fresh piano line enters, it’s a realization that the past was not what she truly deserved. Real love is worth so much more.
Short and sweet, “Real Love” is a story of personal triumph for singer-songwriter Cammy Enaharo, one full of emotional honesty and hope. The instrumentals reflect the vulnerability of the lyrics in their own mellow and intimate ways. Recorded in Rochester, NY along with the rest of the EP, Enaharo has been making a name for herself over the past decade with her unique musical style. Enaharo collaborated with producer Noah Almekinder to make the song and other tracks of Hard To Look At come to life. This particular track has already been added to some of Spotify’s featured playlists.
