flipturn have released their double single “Halfway” / “Brooklyn Baby”, which tell the same tale of a relationship coming apart thread by thread, city by city. Both songs serve as another taste of their upcoming debut album, slated to be released later this year. Watch both lyric videos now below.
With the same fleeting tenderness and beauty of the sun setting, “Halfway” pulls back the veil on the question of whether we are ready to commit and give ourselves completely to one person forever, or if we are only wanting to give them half of us. With unshakeable conviction and vulnerability, this track continues to exemplify how willing the band is to expose every wound within their art.
In “Brooklyn Baby,” the topic at hand shifts to the familiar fear of being alone. The delicately celestial track further reveals the sonic maturity associated with flipturn as they are moving into the era of their debut album.
“The main focus of the song is the question many of us face at some point or another as to whether we are in love with someone or if we are just simply incapable of being alone,” said lead singer Dillon Basse. “Two common traits I’ve found about myself from past relationships are dependency and a fear of loneliness. These traits have regrettably caused relationships to last longer than they probably should, which in the end was just unfair and especially cruel to the other person.”
