International producer Elderbrook has made people around the world dance thanks to his eclectic approach to music production. His collaborations with CamelPhat, Rudimental and Black Coffee have helped him become a household name and as he prepares for the release of his upcoming debut studio album ‘Why Do We Shake Im The Cold?’, the singer has premiered the project’s next single ‘My House’.
The new single showcases a different side to the respected UK talent; a playful, funk-infused, synth-led offering which commands attention. The last 12 months has seen Elderbrook release a string of impressive new music, continuing to cement him as a multi-faceted talent who can effortlessly explore and push boundaries within his genre, centred around exploring themes of human connection. ‘My House’ follows on from the emotive NUMB and the explosive 2019 RUDIMENTAL collaboration ‘Something About You’ with the single amassing 50M combined streams, over 11M video views and earning the producer his 2nd #1 at US Dance Radio.
Speaking on the new single, Elderbrook tells us “I wrote this in Lockdown. I was in my cabin studio at the bottom of my garden and looked out and saw my house…when I started the song I thought it would be in the same context as ‘Our House’ by Crosby, Stills Nash and Young. All about how much I loved spending time in my house. When I started writing it, it took on a completely different meaning.”
He adds “The song focuses on how a lot of people, if not most, always want the next bigger, better thing. Never being happy with what they’ve got. The other side to the lyrics of this song is that a lot of people never stop acting like children; “my house is bigger than your house” “I know you are but what am I” and the whole “I want” culture. Another theme running through is my own experience with childhood and not fitting in anywhere.”
