Multi-faceted rock artist and fashion designer Brocardeis back with a new powerful single, ‘Twisted’, alongside a gothic horror epic video, a chilling accompaniment to the Halloween season, due for release on 16th October. PRE-ORDER HERE. Brocarde will also launch the ‘Twisted’ a capsule clothing collection of limited edition pieces, featuring lyrics from the single, available on WWW.BROCARDE.COM
Written by Brocarde herself, ‘Twisted’ in the artist own words is “an anthem to diminish all boxes and preconceived notions and a rally cry to tear up the rule book, a refusal to be limited by others’ imaginations. It’s an anthem for all those who feel judged and misrepresented.” In its composition, ‘Twisted’ is the most simplistic song from the trained opera vocalist upcoming album, while the self-directed visual it’s a twisted circus of horrors in which the artist brings her imagination to life from set dressing and costume design to editing.
Speaking on the video and its connection to the lyrics and meaning, Brocarde says; “I’m essentially watching my own life play out as if I’m not part of it. I’m studying myself being pulled in multiple directions and I’m watching myself be manipulated to the point of fear and suppression. It has dark undertones and sadistic notes, I wanted to make myself uncomfortable, hence having knives thrown in my face, it’s actually terrifying to watch some of that footage back and to see how close I was to being hit with a blade.”
‘Twisted’ follows the release of the ‘Love Me ‘Till I’m Beautiful’ EP, released in July, which saw Brocarde teaming up with Korn’s legendary drummer Ray Luzier. Clocking over 800,000 streams across platforms, while the video for the lead single reached nearly 1 million YouTube plays to date. The EP also featured the trained opera singer’s powerful coronavirus-inspired track, ‘World Upside Down’, which video was filmed on her phone during lockdown.
Brocarde has been praised as a unique talent by everyone who counts; from rock magazines and radios including Planet Rock MagazineKerrang! Radio and Planet Rock Radio, to newspapers including The Sun and The Daily Mirror. As well as winning praise from music critics, she has a growing legion of fans among some of the biggest music stars including Korn’s Luzier and Whitesnake‘s David Coverdale who has described her as an “electrifying, creative new artist.”
With ‘Twisted’ Brocarde once again shows that she is a bold artist, armed with infinite creativity and equipped with a matchless voice.
