London-based singer-songwriter Ladybyrd is set to captivate listeners with the release of her bewitching new single, ‘Open Cage’ scheduled for Friday, the 22nd of March. In preparation for the release of her hotly-tipped debut album, this empowering offering is a dynamic showcase of her writing talent and unique pop sensibilities.

‘Open Cage’ is a heartfelt song that explores the emotional struggle within a troubled relationship. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of feeling trapped, as if confined within a cage, wanting more, yet simultaneously knowing they have the freedom to walk away. It captures the inner battle and the longing to keep the relationship alive, fueled by the deep love and passion that still remains, despite its imperfections.

In her latest single, Ladybyrd expresses a darker side to her signature cinematic sound, intertwining the haunting allure of Lana Del Rey with the lyrical impact of Taylor Swift. Opening over a bed of simmering electric guitar, the singer-songwriter reflects on the innocence of a relationship’s beginning, which turns tumultuous. Led by vocals that range from evocative and gentle to vigorously passionate, ‘Open Cage’ is a spellbinding fusion of towering melodies and gripping instrumentation. Serving as a hypnotic addition to her discography, the new single is set to propel her to greater heights.

Originally from Buckinghamshire, Ladybyrd’s music journey led her to London, grasping each opportunity that came her way. Defining her aesthetic in the process, the singer has modelled for catwalks and editorial shoots including a role with Louis Vuitton. Most notably, a chance encounter with legendary film star Tom Cruise led to a discussion on her love for the film scores that originally influenced her songwriting. This resulted in a collaboration with the Mission Impossible composer on vocals for an upcoming TV series.

After a month spent in LA, Ladybyrd also met with several film composers. Among them was Harry Gregson-Williams (Shrek, Narnia, X-Men, Chicken Run, Phone Booth, Flushed Away). Speaking on the meeting, Ladybyrd shared: “Harry invited me to his studio and gave me advice on orchestration. I had to pinch myself. I grew up listening to his scores, especially The Chronicles of Narnia. The experience was hugely inspiring.”

‘Open Cage’ is an enigmatic follow-up to her previous single ‘Way Back Home’, which introduced the enthralling nature of her anticipated new music and gathered an array of praise from the likes of the Sunday Times, Record Of The Day, Wonderland, Clash, and Notion. Ladybyrd’s spellbinding display of talent in early singles ‘Too Close To Call’, ‘Sub Zero’, and ‘Every Second’ additionally earned her recognition from BBC Introducing as “one of 2022’s outstanding newcomers.”

Having experimented with a multitude of genres on 2022 EP ‘Sub Zero’, Ladybyrd shared the outcome of her creative process - “All of it led me to my sound now, far faster than I had expected. My range became bigger, my higher register stronger, and I learnt to use my voice in lots of different ways.”

Ladybyrd’s music is a magnetic reflection of the singer’s transformative journey over the past two years. From navigating life as an anxious teenage girl to facing battles with insomnia, mental health, and complex relationships, Ladybyrd’s songwriting is an empowering voyage of personal growth, exploring themes of self-discovery through heartfelt, relatable lyrics. These upcoming releases are destined to enchant an ever-growing audience, showcasing the magnitude of Ladybyrd’s craft.

Marking the beginning of a promising career, Ladybyrd’s talents have been elevated through live performances supporting Tom Speight at Islington Assembly Hall and for BBC Introducing. With her signature multifaceted style and unique talent, Ladybyrd’s star quality is set to enchant the pop landscape and beyond.

Gear up for ‘Open Cage’ out on Friday, March 22nd, and stay tuned for more releases from Ladybyrd.
