Watch Brooke Bentham’s Dirty Dancing reshoot – where Baby’s dream moment turns into a total nightmare

New music from the South Shields songwriter

Back in February of this year Brooke Bentham shared one of her first tracks, ‘Heavy and Ephemeral’.

At that point, the 21-year-old songwriter from Southshields was wrapping up her studies at London’s Goldsmiths university, preparing to go on a UK tour and hatching plans for her debut EP (‘The Room Swayed’).

Now, these months down the line, there’s a second EP on the way, ‘This Rapture’. No release date for that yet, but she has just shared this new track ‘Losing, Baby’ along with a new video.

The clip, by filmmaking collective Siblings, is described as “the alternative ending to Dirty Dancing – Baby was put in a corner and now she’s back to drag everyone into her grotesque nightmare.”

She’s playing some shows soon, in these places.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
