Alternative singer Phem sheds light with her voice into a queer dark track produced by Tim Anderson, known for working with the likes of Halsey, Twenty One Pilots, and Youngblood among other known artists. “Sweater” is the lead single of her upcoming EP VACUMHEAD, to be released this upcoming month on September 27th.
The track’s lyrics dive into seeking meaning behind the rejection of an unrequited love. “At least I got your sweater keeping me warm forever,” the artist sings, as she acknowledges that her potential love might not ever come back.
There’s a sense of acceptance in the situation within the singer’s soothing voice. The alternative track has deep meaning all throughout, as the hip hop beat rolls through. The video was shot and edited by spun boi, who previously collaborated with Phem on her video for “Jump,” known for it’s artistic aesthetic. This video goes through the artistic shots of Phem within a body of water as the song’s title flashes through. It’s different, it’s new, it’s alternative, it’s Phem. And we are here for this new queer alternative anthem.
