Holly Humberstone has revealed her debut single Deep End, out now via Platoon. Taking inspiration from Damien Rice, Lorde, Bon Iver, Phoebe Bridgers and HAIM, Holly’s style is honest and conversational, fusing the warmth of the acoustic music she grew up listening to with a darker atmosphere and tone.
Speaking about ‘Deep End’, Holly explains:
“This song is quite a personal one. It came out pretty naturally, as one of my sisters was going through a difficult time and I was struggling to know how best to help. This song is my way of telling her that I’m always here. It feels like a lot of people are going through something similar or suffering themselves and don’t have an outlet to express it. It’s a difficult conversation but really important to let those around you know that you care for them and will always stand by them.”
Holly is currently working on her debut EP with producer Rob Milton (Easy Life), in the old countryside house she grew up in.
