Carla dal Forno unveils aerial and intimate new single “Side by Side”

“Side by Side” is taken from Carla dal Forno‘s upcoming album Come Around, out November 4 via her own imprint Kallista Records.

Some weeks ago, Carla dal Forno announced the release of her third full-length project Come Around and shared the title track. Today, the Australian artist unveiled another taster off the record, the aerial and intimate “Side by Side.

“‘Side By Side’ is about the anticipation of hooking up with someone and the feelings of inevitability, transparency and impatience,” dal Forno stated. “It’s all in the lyric, ‘Make your move / I recognise the method you use.’ I’ve been sitting on this track for a few years. The production was really slow at first, leaning towards ‘ballad’ territory but it really seemed to find its groove when I increased the tempo and leaned into the bassline hook.”
