London based indie-pop newbie Philip Brooks reveals thumping lead single “so long, see you someday”
Out now, brand new single, ‘so long, see you someday’ finds London-based dreampopper Philip Brooks amidst the turmoil of a millennial on-off relationship. A song sparkling of nostalgia and introspectiveness, the 22-year old attempts to make sense of the ‘break-up-make-up chaos’ and pain of modern dating.
“I feel like I need someone to hold, but I know that’s wrong”, he admits over a pounding four-on-the-floor beat and shimmering synths, showcasing pop sensibilities seen in the likes of Lorde and The Japanese House.
“You can get super addicted to the intimacy and familiarity of having someone – or anyone really, and like almost anyone I feel terrified of the idea of being alone, but that’s just so unhealthy”, he elaborates on the topic.
‘so long, see you someday’ is the final release before freshly announced debut EP ‘Half Alive In A Dream”, to be celebrated with a release show at Paper Dress Vintage on November 27th. Philip is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting new artists to arrive this year, being described by early critics as “nostalgic and emotionally charged” and a “dreamy mélange of spacey guitar lines and airy melodies”.
Philip has also been cutting his teeth in the live arena, touring with acts such as EUT and Tiny Ruins, as well as co-signs from peers such as Girl In Red shows that Philip is one to watch over the next 12 months.
