Electronic Indie Pop artist Philippine releases new single “Just Dancing”, the perfect soundtrack to your weekend.
Names such as Lennon Stella and Maggie Rogers might start buzzing around your head whilst listening to Philippine’s new single “Just Dancing”, an Electronic Indie Pop tune laced with Country influence. Yes – I hear it – but Philippine is an artist that creates entirely outside of anyone’s expectations. She can’t be confined to comparisons and genres. To pigeon-hole Philippine would be to do a disservice to the immense creativity of her songwriting…
It may not come as a surprise that Philippine’s roots lie in Country music, her melodies catchy and lyrics disarmingly honest. Tremolo guitars ring out accompanied by a taste of the vocal hook as a precursor to a stripped-back verse. Philippine’s delicate voice is complemented with percussion comprised of sampled found-sounds, leading us into a huge chorus of driving beats, pulsating synthesizers and lush layered vocals. There’s a strong sense of modern Pop present throughout the song, from the electronic instrumentation to the candid nature of the lyrics, and it is beautifully juxtaposed by the ‘je ne sais quoi’ of Philippine’s innate otherworldliness.
Both ethereal and straight-talking, “Just Dancing” is a joy to listen to from the first chord to the final beat. Philippine exposes her heart to the world in this confessional new release, a must-listen for the weekend and beyond. The future for this Dutch artist is very bright indeed; be sure to follow her on social media to keep up with her latest news.
