Many members of our comments section and Discord server are stoked on CMAT, aka saucy Irish pop singer-songwriter Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson — and for good reason! Her new album Crazymad, For Me is shaping up real nicely, what with lead single “Whatever’s Inconvenient” leading to today’s new track “Have Fun!” It’s a midtempo piano-led number that finds some space all its own between Spoon’s “Inside Out” and, I don’t know, Lily Allen? Nice string section on the bridge too.
CMAT has this to say:
This is a song about ring necked parakeets that are wild in London, but it is also a song about getting over a breakup and moving on from an emotional stalemate even when you don’t, or can’t, forgive the other person’s actions. I suppose it is a song about how things in life are never satisfying, and don’t make sense, but they exist anyway and we have to make the best of it. And have fun!
