TUNE Philip Brooks - spend some time alone inside my head
- new single ‘spend some time alone inside my head’ out 25/04/19
Dreamwave meets bedroom pop with rising independent artist Philip Brooks and his new single ‘spend some time alone inside my head’. The track might seem upbeat, but it originates from a darker place. The 21-year-old bleach-blonde is reflecting on the struggle of mental health and derealisation through the song. Describing the effort of breaking deep-rooted patterns and the inability to find help in other people's advice, Philip finds that there is no simple solution to overcoming what's making you feel less alive and wearier.
Even so, you can feel how much solace and healing Philip Brooks finds in his music. The uplift he is struggling to find mentally can be heard in the lively instrumentation of ‘spend some time alone inside my head’. With its steady driving drumbeat, plucky bassline and brain-massaging vocal harmonies, the track creates an almost hopeful lushness. Philip Brooks infuses an indie band sound with a modern pop sensibility, with the talented multi-instrumentalist writing and producing the track himself from his bedroom. Brooks invites the listener to immerse fully into his creative mind as he demonstrates how much thought he puts into every element of the music. Associations of late summer dreamscapes will arise, though less of a cliché Californian bathing beach and more of a moody Brighton summer breeze.
