"Clumsy" is part homage and throwback to the gritty sound that made soul music stand out: sensual vocals, funky bass lines, introspective lyrics, warm Rhodes, and bebop-inspired horn arrangements. You'll hear influences of J Dilla and Roy Hargrove. For this song, Cecily collaborated with Soul/Jazz artist Drew Kid, and bassist Malik Hunter, who plays with Black Milk and Aaron Abernathy.
Lyrically, songwriter Cecily was inspired by the following quote from Thich Naht Hahn's book How To Love: "To love without knowing how to love wounds the person we love." "The song", Cecily says, "is about being vulnerable enough to say, 'I don't love myself the way I should, and I don't want to hurt you while I figure out how to do that.' It's about rejecting the fear of being alone."
