Here at The Honey POP, we love to highlight new artists breaking into the music scene. And, if you are looking for a new artist to spruce up your playlist, look no further than rising indie artist Culi.
Culi., Philip Kniese, hails from Uitgeest in the Netherlands. The 18-year-old indie artist released his first single, ‘Change,’ in 2019 that he recorded in his attic with just his guitar, laptop, and recording equipment-how cool is that? Since then, the young indie artist has released multiple singles and even his first EP, Where is Olivia Summers?
Culi. is releasing his latest single, ‘Eighteen,’ on all streaming platforms on April 8. This track is filled with guitar riffs and pop-inspired melodies that make for the perfect indie anthem and any playlist. Catchy lyrics like, “we’ll never be those kids again/ but we are nowhere near the end/ hope you burn it down, hope you celebrate/hope you understand, hope you find a way” are easy to sing along to and make listeners think about those fun yet kind of scary years.
Taking Inspiration From Real Life
Culi. uses his own experience turning 18 as inspiration for the indie anthem. He sings about trying to live in the present after reaching this milestone and that while becoming an adult might be boring—relatable af—it will all be okay. The song’s message is universal and makes you look forward to living life to fullest.
I dreaded turning 18. You suddenly get all kinds of responsibilities and have to grow up. But once I got there, it wasn’t too bad.
