Brookline, an alternative rock band from upstate New York, recently released their second single from their upcoming EP called “Fade” which comes out February 22nd, 2019. The single “Sinking” was released February 1st on Spotify, iTunes and many other streaming apps and websites. This song follows right behind the first single, “Two Thirds”.
With a mixture of 90’s alternative and current alternative, it is pleasant to listen to no matter what you’re doing. It has the perfect rhythm and beat to get you tapping your foot but leaving you to be able to have it play in the background while you’re busy cleaning or doing your homework. I would highly suggest giving this song and this band a shot, they’re definitely going to be a band that I look out for when it comes to touring!
The EP “Fade” is said to be about personal issues in which includes substance abuse. “Sinking” itself makes me feel like it’s about the vocalist being someones lighthouse, being who guides the person to better things while their friend is the ship that’s sinking. They’re trying to help their friend by bringing them to the light, cleaning them up and helping them but the friend instead keeps reverting back to drugs; in which that leads the person representing the lighthouse unsure of what to do until they realise that no matter what they do, no matter how they help, the person will always revert so they feel the need to let them go. They want to help their friend out but it’s taking a toll on them and they feel that they can’t help them any longer because it’s straining their friendship and how both parties get through the day.
