Medium Build releases ‘Crying Over U’, a single brimming with heart and desire.
Medium Build is the artistic project of American singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Nick Carpenter. After being born and raised in Georgia, Nick left the church environment he was in at aged 18, and settled in Anchorage, Alaska. It was here he was able to explore his identity and bisexuality, and pursue music in his own voice. Alaska became the creative home of Medium Build, and the centre for his core fanbase. He recently made the move to Nashville, ready to take his journey in music to new heights.
Medium Build’s new single is the heartstring-pulling ‘Crying Over U’. The track manages to tap into a variety of emotions and topics, all delivered with his sweet vocal tone. The lyrics suggest a feeling of having strong emotions for someone who is unworthy of your time. Perhaps also of giving your time to that person, even when you know it is unwise. This is a powerful concept that many are bound to relate to. There highlights what is possibly Medium Build’s greatest strength, as words that resonate with his audience is something he manages to achieve again and again.
The song has been met with greatly positive response, building on the success of previous tracks ‘Cuz of U’ and ‘In My Room’, released towards the end of last year. Everything seems to be aligning for Medium Build, with him recently announcing that he will be supporting Holly Humberstone on her European tour. Medium Build appears to be entering a golden era of his artistry, and it will be fascinating to see where this leads him. It seems as though he is in for a wonderful 2024, and we will certainly be following closely.
To surmise, Medium Build’s description of his track summed it up perfectly;
“This song is about realizing you have some feelings you were hiding from. Or actually I think it’s more about having desires you know aren’t good for you. I spend so much of my life avoiding feelings; eschewing desire to avoid discomfort and pain. But here we are in this song realizing I am riddled with urges. Filled up to the brim with feelings and longings. wanting people who aren’t good for me. Aiming for success in music which seems guaranteed to destroy me. This song is about fame and old flames. About family curses. About the absolute loneliness of desire.”
