Today, Canadian singer-songwriter BAD CHILD unveils the tormented video for his single, “Behave”, via 21 Entertainment/ Universal Music Canada/ Capitol Records/ Virgin Records. The cast of the video is made up of BAD CHILD fans who responded to a casting call on socials earlier this year.
Reflecting on the track and the idea behind creating the visual BAD CHILD explains,
“Behave” at its core is about discipline and wanting to break out of the shackles of a desperate life. The visual is a play on the oppressive nature of the chorus. Rene Gibson (The Director) and I wanted to create something cold and bleak, very Orwellian or something the Wachowski’s would admire. We did a fan casting and it was an incredible response we had people drive from all over. Some made more than 20-hour drives from places in the states to be in our production. That’s the kind of thing you can’t make up, it really makes it worth it to feel that love from the fan base.”
