PROPS SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘BEFORE YOU LET GO’ FROM THE NEW MIXTAPE ‘songs’, OUT NOVEMBER 11TH

THE NEW SINGLE ‘before you let go’ – LISTEN HERE
 
FROM THE NEW MIXTAPE ‘songs’,
OUT NOVEMBER 11TH – PRE-SAVE HERE

South Londoner props occupies a rarefield space in the music scene, his singular style uniting bedroom pop infectiousness, manic pop-punk energy and elements of noise rock formatted for the alt-pop era. It’s an unconventional hybrid of influences, but one that’s building momentum with airplay from Radio 1BBC Introducing6 MusicRadio X, and Apple Music, where Sir Elton John said simply, “I love it!”
 
Now props shares his brand new single ‘before you let go’, which previews the November 11th release of his biggest project to date, his 10-track mixtape ‘songs’.  Listen to ‘before you let go’ HERE.

When you hear the jangly acoustic guitar that introduces ‘before you let go’, you’ll have an idea of where the song is going – but props isn’t one to do the obvious. Suddenly it’s interrupted by ruptured screams and a shoegaze wall-of-sound before again switching back-and-forth with its original style. And then once again it takes you by surprise by adding sweet melodic synths and a rush of punk melody into the mix. The result is a collision course of genres which will broadly appeal to fans who adore a touch of the unexpected in their music. Props wrote and produced the song with Jamie Biles (Holly HumberstoneMiles Kane).
 
props says, “Is it just me or does it feel like the cliff edge is approaching faster every day? ‘before you let go’ is about getting that feeling off your chest and wanting to make the planet a nicer place, but at a time when we’re all programmed to turn on Netflix and zone out completely. I guess it’s appropriate then that you can just interpret these lyrics as a cute, nostalgic break-up song if you like.”    
 
‘before you let go’ provides a taste of the esoteric adventures that props explores throughout the ‘songs’ mixtape. Racing through 10 songs in fewer than 24 minutes, the mixtape’s sonic scope is even wider and wilder than indicated by the single. Yet props brings a cohesive artistic vision to the set, his home-cooked productions bursting with maximalist energy and a fluorescent ambience as he mixes live instrumentation with loops and programmed beats.
 
Influenced by Still Woozy, Mura Masa, Superorganism and Beck, props started playing drums and trombone during childhood before branching out to play… well, almost everything imaginable. He started self-releasing music with his 2020 debut EP ‘Wired’, while subsequent tracks such as ‘Easy’ have graced numerous Spotify playlists and even featured on ‘Made In Chelsea’. He regularly posts one-man self-filmed sessions to social media, which see him playing guitar, bass, synths, drums and percussion to bring his songs to life. Now props is also planning his debut live show.
‘songs’ tracklist: ‘domino’‘easy’‘what you’re made of’‘you & me’‘something about you’‘dream on’‘what are you waiting for?’‘i don’t mind’‘before you let go’‘i thought i saw an astronaut’
