Brocarde recently launched her debut single with a political, socially observant and hard hitting track “Last Supper”.
The angsty track is released alongside its music video, a psychological thriller, that depicts Brocarde’s own demise. The video starts with her arriving at a derelict mansion carrying a cake. And ends with her being served as a delicacy for a gang of ravenous pigs. It indeed has a haunting darkness that’s usually only present in horror movies.
Written and directed by Brocarde, it takes the viewer on an uncensored journey and tackles a host of controversial issues. Such as hunger for the kill, abuse of power, religion and questions what’s accepted as “normal” in society. The intricately woven, anti- establishment lyrics, also make reference to corporate greed, mass consumerism and social media.
Brocarde, who wrote the track after becoming disillusioned with the entertainment industry, once had a thriving pop culture business designing jewelry for the likes of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. It was her experiences with this business that inspired the concept for “Last Supper”.
Brocarde comments: “There was a point in time where my sole worth seemed to depend on which celebrity was wearing my products, it became soul destroying. I became increasingly uncomfortable with encouraging young women to dress like their idols. And selling trends felt hypocritical as they were something I never personally followed.”
