FRESH: ‘Love Me Like That’ – BROOKLNN

BROOKLNN is back with “Love Me Like That”!

by Christopher Smith

Australian pop artist BROOKLNN is back after a year’s wait with her latest single “Love Me Like That”. She tells us: “I really wanted to write one of those songs you could cry to, dance to, make love to. An ‘all the feels’ song. ‘LMLT’ is based on a past relationship I was in that became really toxic. A whirlwind romance. Just whole lot of lust and not a lot of thinking. Soon enough we realized we wanted different things but never said it out loud and eventually he cheated. ‘LMLT’ is probably relatable to anyone that’s experienced that kind of relationship. Where you’d fall too fast, lose the spark just as quick and just sort of stay together because you think it’s better than being alone. I learnt so much from that relationship and him”.

The song came together in a Capitol Records studio in Stockholm with herself, producer Martin Eriksson and German artist Leony. The session was intended to be a co-write for Leony’s project but they soon realised it wasn’t the right direction for her. BROOKLNN felt a strong connection with the concept they’d started so she went with her gut feeling and later revisited the lyrics and melodies with Martin. When they were getting the sound together for LMLT they used some of BROOKLNN’s biggest influences in the current pop genre. You can hopefully hear a similar vibe to these songs when you hear LMLT. BROOKLNN has now moved back in her home town in Brisbane, Australia. After spending 4 years in Stockholm, Sweden, writing songs with and for artists from all over the globe she’s returned to plan her next move and prepare new music for release.

At 22 years old, she was discovered by Hayden Bell (The Veronicas, Savage Garden) who offered BROOKLNN an opportunity to travel to Sweden to experience co-writing sessions and after only a few days she was signed as a writer to publishing house The Kennel and Universal Music. From Sweden she’s been able to travel around Europe and LA for co-writing sessions and has a growing rate of co-written releases. BROOKLNN’s natural flair for writing pop bangers came from her childhood love of the legends that are: Michael Jackson, TLC, J.Lo and more. Unknowingly, she has been writing lyrics since the age of 11 thinking they were just poems. As soon as she began piano lessons she realised she was always writing songs and continued to pursue music from that moment.

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
