Independent musician Claire Brooks releases her debut single Body Language. Written, produced, and performed by Brooks, her track introduces her as a genuine multihyphenate artist. To experience Body Language is to let loose and break things, cry about the nighttime, and take over the world.

Body Language opens with a buttery vocal hook accompanied by her analog synthesizer. Jazzy, sultry chords underlay the song’s lyrical choices that set a tone of confusion that Claire has about her “situationship” with another. As her voice guides the listener through the introduction of the song, a chime of the vintage Juno 106 synth ends the scene, and an unexpected Yo yo yo invites a beat drop and a smooth rap verse. Claire talks about overthinking and under paying-attention in her world that always seems crowded with too many people to remember and connect with.

“This song is a nod to my unhealthy relationship with social media specifically,” Claire explains. “I feel like I’m on my phone way too much because I need to stay connected, but can’t decipher the real and genuine connections from the face-tuned ones.”

Brooks lets her audience know that she’s here for a good time, to listen to good music, to run away from information-overload and chase a feeling instead. She compliments her thoughts with lighthearted topics such as charming addictions to coffee and Advil, and the unholy pairing of the male-gaze and a sundress. Goofy adlibs cut through her verses as if her inner voice has a personality of its own.

When the hook comes back and the song concludes, she makes evidence that her initial confusion is a result of the skewed perception she has of the world that social media addiction has wrought.
