LA-based songwriter and artist Brooke Williams has shared a new single and video titled “happy 4 you.” A powerful track featuring sharply-crafted vocals laid atop an expansive soundscape, “happy 4 you” continues Williams’ run of engaging, versatile singles that draw from an array of genres and influences. “happy 4 you” is paired with a new visual shot by Andrew & Laura with Good X Studios that enhances the single’s nocturnal, ethereal feel.
The instrumentation on “happy 4 you” is airy and lush, opening with atmospheric, raw ambiance before soft, subtle pads drop in to underscore Williams’ rich vocals. Building in layers to create an immersive sound, swelling bass and psychedelic effects add layers to the track, before punchy percussion enters and Williams takes her vocals to soaring new heights. The chorus on “happy 4 you” is cathartic and graceful, containing elegant melodies that showcase her vocal range. Then, the track culminates in a calmer, yet equally evocative outro that brings the listener back down to earth with a soft, forgiving landing.
The visual, shot by Andrew & Laura with Good X Studios uses textural, subdued shots to enhance the nocturnal feel of the song. Faded red hues and moonlight capture its intriguing, ethereal soundscape. The cinematography, paired with Williams’ engaging performance, showcase both Williams and the filmmakers Andrew and Laura’s keen attention to detail, making for a cohesive visual accompaniment for “happy 4 you.”
LA-based songwriter and artist Brooke Williams began writing music at age seven, drawing her love of the craft from a diverse range of influences – from Aretha Franklin and Dolly Parton to Aqua and Kanye. After just one single release, Brooke was found on Spotify by Snafu Records co-founder Ankit Desai and flown out to Stockholm, where she collaborated with acclaimed songwriters and producers, including Carl Falk (Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Ellie Goulding) and Albin Nedler (Avicii, Martin Garrix, One Direction). Together, they wrote Brooke’s debut single “Art of Pretending,” released through Arista Records. Brooke has since written songs for artists including AOA (Virgin), IV Jay (Atlantic), Tritonal, TVXQ! (SM Entertainment), Mishcatt, Shuba, KINGS and most recent collaboration, Big Gigantic. You also may have heard some of her songs on shows like Selling Sunset, UFC and the most recent Starz promo. She’s currently working on her solo project and can’t wait to release new music.
