Eileen Carey's indie pop-rock song "Keep Your Love to Yourself" is an encouraging song that will lift your spirits.The intro starts with subtle nuance and builds gradually as the electric pop synth track beat picks up the groove with simple folk rhythms, complex pop synth instrumentation, strings and banjo.
Eileen's wonderful donw-to-earth, country-tinged, yet pure vocals take over in the chorus as the bridge rises with wailing guitar riffs. Eileen collaborated on the production with the talented team of Meesha Black (Songwriter) and Travis Allen (Producer).
“Keep Your Love to Yourself” is the story of a woman who leaves a toxic relationship for her own sanity and health. Sometimes it’s better to be on your own than to deal with someone else’s craziness. Freedom is a gift that is worth holding onto. The singer stands her ground regardless of emotional ties. “Keep Your Love to Yourself” has a clear message of inner strength and glorious freedom from a toxic love. Sometimes it's better to be alone then to be a "wind up bird."
"Cause its bad for my health, I rather be alone then be your chick. Keep your eyes on the road and keep moving forward. Cuz I’d rather be alone then be your wind up bird. I wake up into the light it’s a good day, cuz I made up my mine your love's a crazy thing; its got me running real fast and it makes me want to say goodbye.”
Eileen Carey is a wonderful artist who is able to share intimate stories through heartfelt lyrics. Meesha and Eileen’s fierce songwriting collaboration will uplift you with a catchy hook, country rhythms, and a unique synth instrumentation that will keep your ears locked in. "Keep Your Love to Yourself" is a masterful, empowering song that everyone can relate to.
