Movies in the Backyard
RGM RATING (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
A feel-good indie-pop track that crafts a fantastical tale of childhood in suburbia.
Brooklyn, New York-based musical creative, Brett Castro, is a singer, songwriter, and producer who creates attention-grabbing tunes you’ll want to listen to on repeat. Some of his well-received songs include “Picture Perfect” and “Just Kids.” His latest drop is the indie-pop single “Movies in the Backyard.” According to the artist, the track “was written on a challenge from my childhood friends to write a song about growing up together in Ohio.”
Straightaway, “Movies in the Backyard” sets the mood with melodic vocals and mellow tones that induce a heartfelt sense of old memories. Lyrics like “dancing through the ashes, burning up the neighbor’s sky” and “all our childish daydreams and secret wonderlands, I sometimes wonder where they disappear when we forget” offer up wonderful images of fantasy along with the delightful reminisce of childhood imagination. You definitely don’t want to miss out on Brett Castro’s latest offering, so press play and let the dreamy essence of “Movies in the Backyard” take a back to a time when anything was possible.
