BRKN LOVE Releases New Song “Like A Drug”
- Toronto-based alt-rock band BRKN LOVE has released a new song “Like A Drug” along with a music video.
The song received its first play during BBC Radio 1's Future Artists with Jack Saunders.
It was written by Justin Benlolo, and Anton Delost, who also produced the track.
The band frontman Justin Benlolo said of the song, “I became infatuated with ’70s disco and funk over the last year. I really loved that a lot of those influences were showing up in modern music again. In this song, we decided to embody the groove of those timeless classics whilst mixing in our own blend of dark and moody riff rock. In a sense, this is a rock and roll party song.”
He continued, “Lyrically, it’s the story of star-crossed lovers who are tied up in a toxic relationship. It’s become a ‘one-sided’ relationship, yet this person still justifies their love while being an absolute piece of garbage. As I’ve grown older, I’ve seen this happen too many times and decided it would be an interesting thing to touch on. I think a lot of people could relate to this and are probably in that situation right now. I tried to think of what the ‘bad guy’ might be thinking in this context and what motivates them. All in all, while the lyrics may be serious, I hope this song makes you get up and move!”
- The video features Royal Thunder frontwoman Mlny Parsonz. He said of the video, “We also shot a video in between a few shows last fall — our most silly and fun yet! Ultimately, we decided that this song, and it’s upbeat feel, needed a cheeky video to accompany the vibe. Our friend Mlny Parsonz of Royal Thunder was cool enough to come down to the shoot and play a part in this as well. I’m very excited for everyone to hear this thing and I hope you’ll be ready for what we got coming next. Thank you.”
