UK-based singer, songwriter, and producerPimms Brooke shares her smooth Dark-Pop ballad called Try and opens up about her “Bold, Strong, Sensitive, Power and Worldly” sonic realm.

Hello Pimms! What’s on your mind right now?

That I’ve just cheated…On my diet :-)! 

Tell us everything we should know about your new track TRY:

It’s amazing and should be on your playlist! Hehe! Seriously though I’m super proud of this track and excited to deliver the message it portrays. 

The track is being called a “dark pop ballad”, which is interesting…I kind of like that analogy. The song is about trying or not trying. Take and chance or kill it off… One lyric is “It’s like bullets to my head” which I can feel those “Dark Pop” feels coming in lol! I wrote this song 2 years ago and really felt the words would relate to people who find it hard to take a chance or at least try to. Staying safe and blaming others around you is easy… But it is you that has to sho, the skin you want others to see, gain the confidence you need to move up. It’s about pain and a feeling of being trapped in your choices. I could go on and on! ☺ 

When did you start writing music?

When I was 16 years old, I joined a training program, in East London called DV8 Training, I wrote my first song “Never Gonna Change” and learned how to write, produce, co-write, music business, and put on my first music event at Stratford Circus. Buskin from Heartless Crew was one of the guests that came to speak to us all and we are still in touch to this day! What an epic artist he is and a great mentor to the masses! 

Can you describe your sound in 5 words: 

Bold 

Strong 

Sensitive 

Power

Worldly  

Which animal would best suit your personality?

Defiantly a Lion, I’m a Leo by star sign. But I behave like one… Not scared to hunt alone and always find a strong pack, who has my back. I also lie and wait patiently till I pounce…  

What was the first album you purchased?

Oh dang! I think it was a tape of The Spice Girls ekk! A tape you know! 

They will come back soon the old cassette baby! 

How would you describe your fashion style?

Weird Nice Funky Shit lol! 

What does the rest of 2021 hold for you?

I have a lot going on G! hehe! Festivals, I’m working on my new album…Got loads in the pipeline…I big travel soon….Don’t forget to get me on socials and check out my music videos on YouTube. If you got, this far – thanks for reading! Mwah!  ☺
