Brenda's new single “Children” is about manipulation and the inevitability of growing up. On the surface level this could be a song about a friendship, or even a relationship, but go a little deeper and the song is about childhood and what happens when people lose their childlike innocence. Everyone, at some point, wants to escape the trappings of adulthood and run away to a place where it seems as if time doesn't exist and age doesn't matter. This song vacillates between these two states of being.
"“Children” is one of the first songs we ever wrote. The video footage was shot on film by artist Sarah Ann Watson in East London. The clowns in the video are gathering at an annual church service to honour the father of modern "clowning", Joseph Grimaldi. We thought clowns would be a fitting representation of the themes in "Children". The event is usually known as a happy one, but the footage of the celebrating clowns seems a lot more sinister when paired with the song. Really a gathering of clowns is terrifying for everyone but the clowns."
The track is off their upcoming EP Creeper which will be out later this year.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
