Irish-born, Berlin-based artist CROOK shares his second single of 2019, “my bf (kinda),” via Brooklyn-based indie label Sleep Well Records. With effervescent instrumentation and soft, earnest vocals, CROOK explores the conflicting nature of a murky relationship in a way that’s both intimate and ambiguous.
CROOK says about the new single:
“I wanted to write a song about a particular experience that I had — one that felt too obtuse/undefined to work as a pop song. Although it took a long time (please don’t ask how long, it’s embarrassing), I did find a way to write it. Even better, I found that I could describe it, quite simply, as a ‘love song.’
This is a love song where it’s not clear who’s in love with whom and to what extent. And it’s not clear what kind of love it is. If this sounds like *your* experience of love, you’ll probably enjoy this song.”
