August Brodie has shared his new single Playing For Keeps, making it the fifth offering from the artist this year. Set to a soundtrack of alternative rock blending with pop influences, “Playing For Keeps”depicts the stage at the end of a volatile relationship when it becomes too toxic to maintain.
The song is full of relatable lyrics and fresh summer sounds that will heat up your nights. Here is what Brodie had to say about the new single:
“I’ve had relationships where it gets to the point where both sides become vindictive towards each other by trying to make the other love them even if they can’t do so themselves, and also that they can come out on top. To me it’s just such a dark and twisted thing to do to someone who you once loved, to have it become a competition for the remainder of each other’s heart in the end, but it happens. With lyrics like ‘I need your love even though I won’t love again’, the song tries to capture that emotional conflict.”
