Cariss Auburn: 'Too Tired To Sleep' Turns Frustrations Of Lockdown Into A Positive

Too Tired To Sleep (Single)

Cariss Auburn

Using the frustrations of lockdown to create something positive is exactly what Wolverhampton soul singer Cariss Auburn has done with her latest release ‘Too tired to sleep’.

After building a steady live following and some notable live spots over the past few years this latest track follows last single ‘Way Down’ which gained international radio play and support from Capital Xtra and is set to continue the momentum for the talented singer/ songwriter.

The track itself is inspired by the occasional insomnia she suffers and how she loses the motivation to sleep because it means starting another day. This is something a lot of people can relate to, especially during these crazy times we are all going through and it is in that fact that I think this song will resonate for a while with listeners.

Even though the lyrical content may be dealing with dark emotions with lyrics like, ‘I watch the sun come up, and another has gone but maybe tomorrow will be a better one, you look at me and say goodnight, but I can’t make that promise these days', musically, it has quite a different feeling. The song sounds uplifting and optimistic and vocally it is delivered beautifully and it definitely has the summer vibe to it and lush soundscapes. It makes me want to be sitting in a park with friends and chilling to it over a few drinks and just soaking up that feeling of socialising and smiling.
