Painting portraits of her life through music, singer-songwriter Brooke Sause has been very up front about what she’s going through. She made her debut in 2021 with “ex that’s not my ex,” and followed it up with “More” and “fallin for you,” each track playing out like a diary entry. With over 100k streams on “fallin for you,” Brooke clearly is not alone in her journey, and fans are always anxious and ready to find out more. With her new single, “How Long,” Brooke fills them in on the aftermath that follows a tough breakup.
A charming indie pop-meets-chill acoustic track, “How Long” focuses on that tumultuous period after a breakup, when all the second guessing comes into play. With a country ballad honesty, Brooke sings, “How long have you been faking it? / Acting like you’re interested / How long? / Were you kissing just to pass the time / Did everything to make you mine / How long?” Her devastation is even more so in the bridge, when she asks if it was easy for this other person to just break her heart. You can check it out below.
Giving us more details about “How Long,” Brooke shares,
“‘How Long’ is about being heartbroken and realizing that the person who broke your heart never loved you like you loved them. It’s about going through the memories and reanalyzing every detail and facet of the relationship, trying to pinpoint where the lies began. While reflecting, you think of all the moments and signs you ignored because you were too in love to be logical.”
