Casey Desmond Premieres Video for New Single 'Bad Habit'


MTV Buzzworthy is right on the pulse with their premiere of Casey Desmond's new video for "Bad Habit" today. Most you will remember Desmond as one of the finalists on the very first season of NBC The Voice when she was part of team Adam and belted out a gut-wrenching rendition of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love." Last year, Desmond returned with brand-new original music on her album "Deja Vu." And boy, it sure has been worth the wait.

Desmond's new single "Bad Habit" prominently displays all of the colorful pop goodness that she's all about. Inspired by her love for everything '80s, her bold sense of fashion and powerful vocals, "Bad Habit" is a confident glam-pop track with that puts Desmond in a league of her own. The singer's obsession with glam should come not as a big surprise. She was the lead singer of a glam-rock band in high school before she moved to Boston to further pursue her passion for music.

In a recent interview with Truth of Sarah blog, Desmond talks a little bit more about the sonic direction of "Deja Vu. "[The album] is very dancey. There are a lot of tongue and cheek songs, with comical themes," she explains. "I write about love, sex, lust, and relationships a lot. I obtain a bunch of inspiration from these themes, and I'm a hopeless romantic." 

Taking cues from artists like Goldfrapp, LaRoux and Dragonette, Desmond adds that she is a huge lover of pop music and electronica. "No matter what instrument you put in front of me, I will try to write a pop song with it," she smiles. "Pop will always have a place in the music industry, however it evolves. I also really love synthesizers and pop music from the '80s. My musical style is based on years of writing what I'd consider poppy, hook filled songs, and endless nights with a synth and a bottle of wine. Electro pop and me are in bed together."
