Big fan of Lennon Stella and Maggie Rogers? Looking for music that combines 80s influences with a modern production and catchy hooks? Then I must now present to you: Philippine. With her bright and luminous vocals, the 21 year old singer and artist stuns you with lyrics about real life experiences, and melodies that you will not be able to forget quickly.
The singer’s country roots can still be discovered into her songwriting and into the big role the acoustic guitar plays in her music. But modern pop music and pop music from the 80s have also inspired her production, which can especially be heard in the percussion and the use of synthesizers. Her sound tends to lean more into a modern pop sound in most of her songs, but in especially her ballads and slow songs, the country influences come forward.
In April 2020, Philippine released her debut single Gone. “It is her breakable voice and the unexpected hooks that make ‘Gone’ an interesting journey,” was written by the music blog Music for Misfits, and Lefuturewave wrote: “Gone sounds so good. I like the unique melodies. Besides, the vocals are outstanding. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the powerful hooks and amazing harmonies.”. On the 10th of July, 2020, Philippine will release her second single, called Just Dancing.
Philippine has performed many times since she was a young girl, in places such as ESNS, 3FM and the Old Luxor Theatre. This year her new music will be released and she will be touring with Popronde throughout the Netherlands after the summer.
