Offering clever and catchy confessions magnified by expansive pop soundscapes, Australian-born and Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Ivy Adara, encourages such a connection, especially with her newest single 'Want What I Can’t Have'.
“If you ever want something you can’t have, this song is for you,” said Ivy Adara.“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?”
'Want What I Can’t Have' was written in Los Angeles with David Pramik in only a few hours. 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. 'Want What I Can’t Have' is a classic rock song with a modern, minimalistic twist.
Ivy recognized her path early on and wrote her first song at seven-years- old (inspired by Aussie artist Kasey Chambers). From then on, the budding talent simply never stopped writing, leaving her discography’s total streams exceeding 200 million on Spotify alone.
Becoming an in-demand talent behind-the-scenes, she seamlessly transitioned into the spotlight as a solo artist with her first EP Introduction. She then went on to perform co-written song 'Bye Bye' at Coachella and on many more stages with acclaimed DJ, Gryffin.
