Today we’re delighted to feature the video premiere of Binky’s fantastic new single ‘Drug In My Head’. With a vibrant and bubbly personality and a truly infectious sound, Binky is one of the rising stars of the UK country scene. The new single is the perfect showcase for both her music and that personality, and if the video doesn’t bring a smile to your face, nothing will (especially if you’re a fan of massive, human-size lobsters). The psychedelic feel of the video will certainly wake you up this Friday morning.
Co-written with Michael Stockwell (Anteros / Super Junior), Drug In My Head was a real meeting of the minds between the two creatives. Binky explains, “Michael had come up with the riff for the first line of the chorus and thought it could be something special so he called me in. He originally pencilled the song to be about fire, but I
really wanted to go for a cool summer vibe. As you know we had such an incredible summer last year, that seemed to last forever, and everyone was out enjoying a glass of wine or going on holiday. And this really inspired me to write a fun feel summer track.“
“I took inspiration from Teenage Dream (Katy Perry). This was an all-time favourite for me and the girls one summer. I really wanted to create a girl’s sing along. I mean what girl can’t relate to that one teenage relationship that we all have, which we think is going to last forever?“
The song itself has a chorus to die for, making this is a perfect slice of country pop – this is a track you’ll want to turn up and dance to, ideal as we move towards the summer!
Head to http://binkyofficial.com/ to find out more about the London based artist. Particularly fascinating is her bio on the home page – give that a read! The bio ends with the following statement from the artist:
“My journey has been a whirl wind from the start and has been so much more than I ever thought it would be. I have been given the chance of a life time and I can’t express how blessed I feel. This started as a seemingly impossible dream, that dream is now slowly feeling as though it could come true. I can see my goal peering through the clouds. Wherever my future is destined, I will never forget this journey and the people I have met along the way, no matter what lies at the end of the road”.
Here at Belles and Gals, we already get the feeling that what lies at the end of the road could be something pretty special!
