Taura Lamb Is No Crybaby On New Teary EP Tune

After landing her first Radio 1 airplay from Mollie King for Lucky and seeing Talk become her latest track to exceed a million streams, London-based singer-songwriter Taura Lamb has shared her new single Crybaby. It’s the latest track from her ongoing project Moods, which will eventually consist of four EPs each shaped around a particular theme.

Emerging on World Mental Health Day, Crybaby offers an outreach of support to someone in a moment of desperate vulnerability. Lamb’s beautifully elegant vocal delivers a warm embrace of emotion, her utterly heartfelt lyrics striking to the heart of the matter, “Trust it can’t get worse than right now / Know that if it does I’ll stick around and just hope that it helps.” The song also reveals the vulnerability to leave no hiding place for such raw emotion with Lamb’s topline supported only by piano from Swoope alongside subtle string and choir arrangements. The song was written by Taura Lamb, who co-produced the track with Swoope.

Of the tune, Lamb says, “I’m someone who cries at everything – be it a wedding, a funeral or a John Lewis Christmas advert, you best believe I will be tearing up. This song is about a time when I felt I needed to mask the crybaby in me a little, it was time for me to be somebody else’s rock and let them cry all the tears. It’s saying ‘I’m going to be so strong in this moment, for once, so that you can completely and utterly collapse if you need to. I’ll be here to talk it out at any time, on any day, and you are allowed to break down, I’ve got you.’”

Crybaby will feature on the Teary EP, which will collate the most emotional songs within the Moods project. It will be completed by three other EPs, all of which have a distinct theme: Tetchy (the sassy songs), Sultry (the bedroom jams) and Sunny (the uplifting anthems). New songs in the Moods project will be unveiled on a regular basis until the final collection is completed next summer.

The 27-year-old Solihull-native adds, “The project explores the four most prominent moods I’ve embodied whilst writing this new set of work, and experience on a day-to-day basis. Essentially, it will become a deconstructed album, one that is pre-organised for you – simply reach out and play the ‘mood’ you’re feeling that day. With music stretching from the purest R&B to super pop, each EP will be accompanied by a ‘mood’ visualiser, creatively depicting the sensations of each emotion.”

Influenced by the likes of Victoria Monet, Lucky Daye, Cleo Sol, Snoh Aalegra and Pip Millett, Taura Lamb (derived from her given name Victoria Lamb) charts the spectrum of throwback R&B and modernist pop, her music often infused with instant nostalgia as its moods shift from laidback to sensual and celebratory. Alongside her own music, Lamb has also collaborated with other rising talents including edbl, St. Luna and Gaspar Narby, while her most recent headline performance came with a packed London show at The Grace.
