His latest offering, “movies in the backyard“, is a dynamic and smooth-as-hell jam that features stunning harmonies, airy background vocals, poignant lyrics and just enough bounce to get you swaying. About the single, Brett Castro says, “movies in the backyard” was written on a challenge from my childhood friends to write a song about growing up together in Ohio. We were always running through the woods, singing around the piano, or shooting YouTube videos in their backyard. They were my escape out of my own world and into one that we made fantastical. Sometimes I feel like I never left that backyard, and I’m still foraging around for that feeling. And so that’s what I ended up writing.“
Serving as the first tune off of his upcoming 2022 project, “movies in the backyard“, brings a fresh feel with a bit of hometown nostalgia. Having returned home to Ohio to shoot the video alongside his friends in the same spots they used to frequent as kids, the visuals add an another layer of authenticity to the already stellar tune.
