Ivy Adara offers clever and catchy confessions magnified by expansive pop soundscapes with her new single “Want What I Can’t Have.”
Ivy’s raw, dreamy vocals chase a vintage acoustic guitar that provides an organic canvas to tell the story of a girl who’s brave enough to face her demons in order to find herself again. Wrapped in a warm, driving rhythm, the lyrics make you want to dance and cry at the same time. Ivy had the concept for the track floating around her head for months and was continuously mapping out in her mind the best possible way to tell the story, eventually giving us a classic rock song with a modern, minimalistic twist, that is “Want What I Can’t Have.”
“If you ever want something you can’t have, this song is for you,” Ivy said.“I fell for a guy who was in a relationship. The story of Adam and Eve seemed interesting to me as a thematic backdrop because it’s the origin story of temptation. I wrestled with temptation. I hated it, but I was scared and surprised how much I loved it. I was a victim to the double bind of knowing on the one hand I wanted something, but on the other, it wasn't good for me. Why do I always want what I can’t have?”.
The budding talent wrote her first song at seven-years-old and simply never stopped writing since, leaving her discography’s total streams exceeding 200 million on Spotify alone. It is no surprise that Ivy is becoming an in-demand talent behind-the-scenes and is definitely an artist that you’d want to keep an eye out for!
