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.
These Are Truly The Last Days is a musical project with a driven experimental twist. Their music blurs the lines between various genres, including ambient, electronica, glitch hop, and more. The project’s self-titled studio effort features 11 studio tracks.
Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
