Brooklyn singer/songwriter Aubrey Haddard returns with a nostalgic, yet fresh sound. Her new single, called Portuguese Red, is an example of good music. Really enjoying the production on this one. Aubrey doesn’t follow any trends, she sets them. Portuguese Red has soaring vocals, personal lyrics, and strong refrains.
Speaking about the meaning behind the track, Audrey commented: ”The song is about the night I met my partner in 2016. We met at a venue in Williamsburg where our bands were sharing a bill. After the show we shared a few drinks at the bar surrounded by our friends before he tugged on my hand and led me outside, and we shared our first kiss in the middle of a crosswalk on Berry street. Later in his Brooklyn apartment, I sat on the kitchen countertop and he pulled out a half empty bottle of wine from the fridge that we never finished as we quickly fell in love. I asked “If I were a wine, what would I be?” and he told me I’d be a Portuguese Red. Years later I found myself living in the past, holding onto these memories. The video frames me escaping my reality of boring parties and band rehearsals to being trapped in a fantasy under stage lights.”
