Jodie Mellor’s latest pop single ‘Central London’, released via AWAL, has a conversational, chill, and sweet feel on the track.
Laced with tongue-in-cheek songwriting and the universal angst of twenty somethings, ‘Central London’ makes for the perfect love song to get you out of your room.
She wrote the track in her bedroom in 2020 on an acoustic guitar; the way she writes all of her songs. It stemmed from a voice note she recorded of ‘I would drive through central London for you’, which turned out to be the whole premise of the song in the end. It’s taken various forms over the past two-years, but this final version was recorded with her boyfriend Charlie T Smith in their flat in Bristol.
“‘Central London’ lists my fears and anxieties, but shares how all it takes for me to overcome them is having to do them for someone that I care about.” – Jodie Mellor.
