Introducing: Brett Castro – movies in the backyard

The soundtrack of suburbia is being composed by Brett Castro. He hails from the Cleveland area. Currently, the up-and-coming artist tries to reach as many people as possible with his music.

movies in the backyard is Castro’s first single off his upcoming 2022 project. Previous releases charted on Spotify’s Viral 50 chart and have been featured by New Music Friday, Billboard, HillyDilly, and Lyrical Lemonade.

This production resembles Indie-pop. A choir of guitars and a catchy bassline make the arrangement incredible. Music and vocals are melded together perfectly, creating a constant flow of energy.

When describing the song, 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.”
