Brooke Annibale – Be Around

One of Pittsburgh’s finest, singer and songwriter Brooke Annibale returns today with a bold release that continues to showcase this artist’s extraordinary talent.

Lifted from the forthcoming album ‘Better By Now’ (out 30th September via Nettwerk Music Group), new single ‘Be Around’ treats listeners to a perfected fusion of power-pop and dark indie-rock.

“On the surface, this is a simple song about falling for someone and just wanting to be around them. But it’s also about having the confidence to say so. I’ve been feeling a lot more confident in my own skin, and the way this song turned out is a reflection of that. I learned an Oasis song (‘Champagne Supernova’) and loved how the verse was all open chords and then when the chorus hits it has this big lift because of the full major chord. That’s why it feels so great. I went for that feeling on this song.”

Annibale currently commands an impressive 170k monthly listeners on Spotify alone, while critical acclaim comes from the likes of Stereogum, American Songwriter, Under The Radar and NPR.
