BAND SPOTLIGHT: PRECIOUS CHILD
Precious Child Releases NSFW Video for "My Little Problem" & "Phantom" Off of 'TRAPPED' EP
Cinematic Progressive Industrial Artist Precious Child has released a highly politically charged, NSFW Official Music Video for the single "My Little Problem" off of his TRAPPED EP. Directed by Brazilian born and LA based artist Cade,
"My Little Problem" is a song and music video about self discovery, synthetic nature, and sexuality. It is a collaboration between Precious Child and the director Cade.
“This video explores the current pop culture fascination with freeing ourselves from the decay and pain that is contingent with inhabiting a physical body. The question is, if technology allows us to transcend into conscious machines, unable to feel pain, will we feel anything at all but a pressing sense of existentialism? Vaporwave, goth, emo, and kitsch culture were an influence to this project as well as campy sci fi thrillers like David Cronenberg's Videodrome.” - CADE
Precious also released "Phantom," an experiential music video that illuminates the protagonist in "My Little Problem,"
TRAPPED is the 3rd studio album of Precious Child. Recorded in Los Angeles, TRAPPED is an EP featuring reinterpretations of tracks from Bloody Knees and ESCAPE as well as original tracks. "Many of my songs have a common ancestor; when I write, the song I am writing often inspires another, and another, and another. Old ideas inspire new songs and new songs make songs out of old ideas. TRAPPED references these ouroboroses of creativity. I have been in the studio for many months working on an LP and this EP happened amidst the recording for the LP. See what I'm getting at? Hard to tell where the head and the tail begins. We have a desperate need for a reason to exist and art is my reason." - Precious Child
