The track is the third release of a stellar 2023 for the emerging South Coast artist.

On her latest single ‘Envy’, Carley Varley¬†steps away from her comfort zone and writes a track about the difficult topic of the jealousy and envy that emerging artists can often hold for each other in the music industry when opportunities are presented to others, making for a uniquely atmospheric and poignant release that feels distinctive and unique in its feel and appeal.

The emotion and confusion of the narrative is captured expertly by Carley’s immersive vocal performance, as the artist eschews her usual topic of writing about relationships in order to push herself to write about an experience she has seen first hand. The overlying message is one of why can’t artists just uplifting and look to encourage each other rather than seeing everyone else as an enemy and somebody to compete with, and the immersive and melodic nature of this sound mixed with her thoughtful writing ensures that Carley Varley’s appeal shines through regardless of the politics and jealousy she is faced with behind the scenes.
