BROOKE COMBE

Described as “A future megastar” by The Guardian, 23-year-old Brooke Combe might cherish the wide-eyed excitement of her youth, but she has already come a long way from her childhood, raised in a small village just outside Edinburgh.

Inspired by new wave soul artists like Gabriels and Sault, new single ‘Black Is The New Gold’ – out today – allows her to pick apart a different kind of untold story, described by Combe as the most “mature” thing she’s ever written. A smooth, melodic ballad, it gives her the freedom to work through her own understandings of race and identity, reflecting on reading she had been doing about histories of slavery and institutional oppression. Writing the lyrics almost in a state of subconsciousness, it was only when she finished that she realised how close she had cut to personal bone.
