Greer Baxter’s “Sleeping on the Couch” is one indie pop song that is set to blast its way through portable speakers across all university campuses in 2021. This captivating song details the all too relatable tale of sleeping on the couch after an argument with a loved one.
Greer Baxter’s insanely compelling voice conveys all the emotional pain of an argument with your other half. The song’s infectious melody only adds to the commanding piano presence and pounding drum beats to create an irresistible, evocative atmosphere. Baxter explains:
“I wrote this song about suddenly being at odds with the person you love and trying to make sense of it. We’ve all had a night sleeping on the couch and we wake up in the morning thinking: why would we let a fight keep us apart for the night? It’s about wanting to resolve it before falling asleep and wondering if the other person feels the same.”
Haling from New York City, Greer Baxter always showed exceptional musical talent from the start, learning to play piano, sing and write songs from an early age. “Sleeping on the Couch” is Greer Baxter’s first musical outing since the release of her euphoric debut EP “Bleed” in 2019. This EP showcased her innate ability to accurately capture the painful struggle of heartbreak and emotional turmoil, whilst also imposing exceptionally catchy pop melodies. She has successfully combined the sound of artists such as Regina Spektor and Alanis Morisette with an alternative pop sound reminiscent of chart favourite Halsey.
Music is not the only passion in the life of Greer Baxter. Her extraordinary command of the English language has led her to study poetry at university, which gave her the incredible opportunity to meet Michelle Obama at the White House during poetry month.
