As Elderbrook gears up for the release of his debut album in the summer, we get the musical boy wonder to curate a playlist for you to dance, sing and cry in your kitchen to!
Elderbrook’s latest single may be entitled ‘Numb’ but that’s certainly not how we feel when we listen to his raw, vulnerable and emotive artistry.
Starting the year off strong, (despite the absolute chaos the world is engulfed in ATM), with ‘Numb’, there’s no better time to sit back and reflect with Elderbrook as the debut album is just around the corner, giving us all something to look forward to.
With a fiery passion for storytelling that comes as natural to Elderbrook as making music, we can expect the album to be a continuation of Elderbrook’s idiosyncratic and tender approach to life’s hardships that we are all enduring due to the pandemic. Loneliness, detachment and solitude are the pathways Elderbrook dissects within his work with the end result being a light in those dark places waiting to help you.
The multi-hyphenate creative has been gearing up for the release of his debut album for some time now – with collaborations with our faves Rudimental and over 4.5 million Spotify listeners to date, it’s all with good reason. Elderbrook has been working at perfecting his craft and he is fully ready to step into his own spotlight.
As we (im)patiently wait for the debut album, dive into the 10Trax playlist curated by Elderbrook below that will help you laugh, dance and cry all from the comfort of your home for the foreseeable future.
