Cooper Phillip infuses her music with a theatrical feel that only a classically trained musician can behold. The Russian-born, Los Angeles-based artist's latest single “Head Over Heels” encompasses just that: a cinematic and vivacious pop song touching on loving yourself despite our flaws and parading who we are with great pride. Life can throw curveballs, but this singer/songwriter wants you to know that sometimes you’ve got to take one step back in order to take two steps forward.
Known for her work as an acclaimed vocal coach for a number of esteemed singers, Phillip displays her own soulful vocal abilities in “Head Over Heels,” like a peacock showing off it’s feathers. Her incredible range and impressive technique adds color and emotion to the track, emitting a powerful and compelling atmosphere. Groove-infused melodies, bold percussion and an utterly infectious rhythm, the pop anthem makes us want to get up and dance.
The accompanying video, filmed in Ukraine, is both beautiful and captivating. We see a man at a theatre, digging into his popcorn, immersed by the performance of Phillip herself. Her dance routine shows Phillip prancing around the stage, loving her true-self and proving just how comfortable she is in her own skin.
So if 2021 is making you feel down in the dumps, then turn up the volume and become inspired by Cooper Phillip.
