Possessing a unique blend of being raw, real and remarkable, Cody Frost stands out in a sea of aspiring talent. After making a domestic impact with her debut ‘verbal warnings’, her second single ‘HIGH/BYE’ added Stateside acclaim from PAPERand Vanyaland to her burgeoning reputation. As key international playlist adds emerged at both Spotify and Apple Music, both tracks felt perfectly at home alongside an array of the world’s biggest artists when they were featured on Radio 1’s Best New Pop with Mollie King. Cody today shares her third release ‘(I should) take better care’.
As with her other recent tracks, producer Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, SikTh) helped bring Cody’s vision to life. And while Cody likes music to be stripped back and confessional, she had her doubts about including the beautiful, melancholic new single.
Cody explains, “This song is about the process of admitting that you’re struggling, I find it hard to admit when I’m sad, or when I need help, so it’s a reminder that I’m not the only one”.
The single is accompanied by an official stripped back live recording of the single. While Cody’s whirlwind of personality and intense visual aesthetic, the video instead keeps things as simple as possible with a tight focus on her performance and a plain black backdrop. That personal touch really allows Cody to show the full power and depth of the song’s emotion, especially as her voice resonates with both control and raw passion during its dramatic conclusion.

Cody’s early experiences in music were modest, covering Frank Ocean, Nirvana and Slipknot on YouTube and busking in Manchester. After being diagnosed with and then being able to manage her ADHD, Cody put a new focus on her music. Suddenly that low-key start had been replaced with praise from a range of influential talents including Enter Shikari, Tyler Oakley, Sonique, Young Guns and Shamir. Cody, however, has remained grounded and continues to work as both a tattooist and an artist as her music career is beginning to explode.
