Brighton's Libby Whitehouse Unleashes Debut Video Ahead Of Headlining Show @ The Haunt

Eighteen year-old Brighton singer Libby Whitehouse comes straight out the blocks with the release of her first ever music video, for the latest single New Boy.

The single finds the Brighton-based singer calling out cheaters across the world as she delivers an empowerment pop anthem reminiscent of the likes of Dua Lipa, Mabel and Stefflon Don.
 
Regarding the single Libby says: 

"I wrote 'New Boy' about my friend who kept going back to a boy who treated her badly, and he'd only become interested again once she"d left him. 

"The song is a fun way of saying, "Well now it's too late!", and is about appreciating what you have whilst you have it, because girls won't wait around forever!!" 


Continuing about the video she says: 

"I think it represents the song really well. I hope everyone has as much fun watching it as I did filming it!"

In just a year Libby has already proved herself to be a fast-rising name on the pop scene. 

Since emerging in 2017 she's played at summer festivals including The Great Escape and I Luv Live in London' 

Libby has released a trio of well received singles which have clocked up over a million streams, with the latter entering the Spotify UK Viral Chart Top thirty.

Now with the release of New Boy, Libby continues to cement herself as a fresh and exciting new name on the UK pop scene. 

Libby Whitehouse will be performing her first ever live show and will headline The Haunt in Brighton on 13th November 2019 to celebrate the release of her new music. Tickets are available via SeeTickets.
