Rising indie artist philine is set to captivate listeners with her debut single “green”. The track serves as a compelling introduction to her upcoming EP, offering a glimpse into her introspective songwriting and ethereal soundscapes.

With “green,” philine transports listeners on a mesmerizing journey through lush acoustic guitar melodies and a delicate beat, setting the stage for her enchanting vocals to take center stage. The song’s wistful hook, “Darling, everything is green. Took me so long just to see,” invites listeners to embrace a perspective of curiosity rather than judgment, finding beauty in every aspect of life.

Reflecting on the inspiration behind “green,” philine shares, “I wrote it after my first psychedelic experience. During the trip, everything seemed so connected, and I realized that how we perceive the world shapes our reality. This moment really changed the way I look at life. ‘Green’ is about embracing what unites us all and seeing the beauty and love in everything.”

Drawing from her first psychedelic experience, philine infuses “green” with a sense of unity and surrender, inviting listeners to surrender to the collective experience of existence. The song embodies philine’s unique blend of introspection, storytelling, and dreamy melodies, promising to leave a lasting impression on audiences.
