Philip Labes just released a rad pop tune, “WHATEHAVEIDONE.” Once the chorus hits, you will recognize this cat has some talent. The title-worthy refrain has nice catchy fizz that pounds into your brain. It’s like a spinning amusement park ride that keep whirling, but you enjoy the dizziness.
“WHATHAVEIDONE” is the closer on Labes’ debut album, The Boy Who Couldn’t Grow Up. It’s about the familiar feeling of regret, and having to deal with the repercussions of your actions. A universally felt emotion that almost anyone can relate to. The production matches the message, and brings it on home to the listener.
Philip Labes may feel like a kid forced to grow up, but the resulting music is pretty neat.
