Cara Hammond – “Try to Love You”
“Never been the type to run around for some guy. But there was something about you that made me change my mind. And I was young and stupid and now I’ve wasted my time. But there was something about you. There was something about you. I fell foolishly. You aren’t good for me.” – lyrics
The Ryan Hammond-directed video finds Cara dancing her way along the streets of some of her favorite spots in London, including Alexander Palace and Shoreditch.
‘Try to Love You’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming melodies, and groovy instrumentation oozing with a classic indie-pop/nostalgic vibe.
“I was over the moon when Ryan agreed to direct and produce the music video. He’s a fantastic videographer who shares many of the same creative ideas as me. We decided that as I’ve just moved to London it made sense to film it in some of my favorite places. It’s fun, colorful and retro, with many different outfit changes, and many borderline ‘dad’ dance moves.” – Cara Hammond
