RGM RATING (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
A punk rock tune with nostalgic vibes.
Canadian musical creative, august brodie, is a multi-genre singer and songwriter. According to a 2020 interview, he started his musical journey by making hip-hop songs in his bedroom. As his style evolved, he began to incorporate elements of 2000s-styled emo and pop-punk into his songs to create a “nostalgic soundscape;” this led to his current music style. brodie’s influences include artists like Kid Cudi, Mac Miller, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Taking Back Sunday. Like his favorite artists, his platforms spread wide as his music is available on Spotify, YouTube, and SoundCloud. august brodie’s latest drop is the rock single “BAD NEWS!”
“BAD NEWS!” offers plenty of nostalgia with some Blink-182 style moments. Lyrics like “Yeah, I’m a piece of work; that’s why you love me though / binging on me like another episode” and “I don’t think your parents like me / every ex I have, their dad wanna fight me” keep it simple. However, they reflect on the warning signs that make the artist a less than ideal romantic partner. The two styles combine perfectly to create this old-fashioned song with the kind of message that will reach plenty of audiences across the world. brodie’s latest offering is the perfect fit for any 2000s punk rock lover looking for some sweet throwback vibes. So, stream august brodie’s “BAD NEWS!” today to be thrown back into the past.
Chicago based writer and creative. Fan of 80’s horror, fancy coffee drinks, and late night drives.
