Following on from the release of two well received EPs, London-based songwriter Brooke Bentham returned this week with her latest single, “All My Friends Are Drunk”. Brooke is just off the back of a tour with Bill Ryder-Jones, who produced this single, and will be following it up next month with huge shows supporting Sam Fender.

Much of the appeal of Brooke’s songwriting lies in her impressive lyricism, a songwriter detailing the post-university fog of your early 20s, a time when insecurity looms large and the world is simultaneously full of opportunity and utterly terrifying. All My Friends Are Drunk is a musing on growing apart, an attempt to capture “that wishful longing for what was”,set to a backing of driving rhythm guitars and the steady clatter of cymbals. Sliding in neatly alongside the likes of Soccer Mommy or Hazel English, Brooke Bentham creates a world of hazy, tumbling emotions, this feels like the start of something huge.


All My Friends Are Drunk is out now on AllPoints.

I’m excited to present my new single and video, ‘Birthplace’.

The song is about recognising a need for change in yourself, and the ambivalence towards acting upon this recognition. Directors Sil Van Der Woerd and Jorik Dozy, along with freediver Michael Board, beautifully encapsulate this in their film – in humanity’s harmful relationship with nature and what outcomes that ambivalence could ultimately bring.

The Birthplace video features our life sized humpback whale of trash. Crafted in a small Balinese village with the locals, it’s made from plastic bags, bottles and other everyday items that get thrown away and end washed up on onshore
