The British smooth indie pop quartet PREP has just released its latest musical project: the new single “Getaway”, a collaboration with the acclaimed Thai singer-songwriter Phum Viphurit. “Getaway” perfectly summarises the typical PREP sound – relaxed, funky grooves, a catchy, melodic guitar line and soft vocals – summer can come.

According to the band, the songwriting journey took them from Bangkok to Paris over the span of a year. “We wrote this song with Phum in Bangkok and finished it a year later in Paris,” they wrote on Facebook. Teasing the track further, they described it as “a cool little bop”.

Originally founded as a project by four established artists, PREP has developed from EP to LP from an insider tip to a bearer of hope of sophisticated British pop music. The quartet comprises of Grammy nominated producer Dan Radclyffe, French drummer Guillaume Jambel, Welsh keyboardist Llywelyn Ap Myrddin and London-based singer and frontman Tom Havelock. Together, they have created over the past decade an eclectic blend of contemporary indie pop, soul and synths, deeply rooted in the melodic West Coast elegance of the 70s and 80s.

Known as Thailand’s first indie pop star, Phum has amassed over 100 million streams for his single “Lover Boy,” solidifying his position as a prominent figure in the music industry.

Phum Viphurit’s musical style is characterized by a laid-back and eclectic blend of cultural influences, reflecting his upbringing in New Zealand and his experiences in Bangkok. Since his debut album “Manchild” in 2017, Phum has captivated audiences with his distinctive songs. Tracks like “Long Gone” and “Hello, Anxiety” have garnered widespread acclaim.

“Getway” is now available on all music streaming platforms.
