Canadian artist August Brodie has released his latest single Playing For Keeps. The new single is a soundtrack of alt-rock and pop influences highlighted by Brodie’s honeyed vocals and deals with the end of a volatile relationship when it is too toxic to maintain. Here is what August had to say about the single: “I wrote ‘Playing For Keeps’ about a failed relationship. Love is a game and there’s a moment when you both find yourselves battling each other when it’s ending for the last win” August shares on his inspiration behind the track. “I’ve had relationships where it gets to the point where both sides become vindictive towards each other by trying to make the other love them even if they can’t do so themselves, and all so that they can come out on top. To me it’s just such a dark and twisted thing to do to someone who you once loved, to have it become a competition for the remainder of each other’s heart in the end, but it happens.” For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)
