KANDLE’S NEW MUSIC VIDEO
Kandle revealed today her most recent music video for the song «Gimme a pill». Released two years ago on the album In Flames, the song describes the struggle of living with chronic pains: "Living with chronic pain is the biggest challenge in my life. As much as I fight to stay positive and to pursue traditional and alternative treatments for my pain, some days I still can't find the strength to get out of bed or have to cancel a show and go to the hospital. My condition at times consumes me and the mixture of medications that I've come to rely on erodes me instead. But I refuse to drown in self pity and instead I choose to create art out of my situation and show a representation of what it's like for all of us being held back by pain. My best pal Maya Fuhr brought to life a beautiful little video for us of 'A day in the life' trying to escape from the struggle and fighting to be free!"
Don't miss her at Anachronik Festival on May 5th. Tickets are available here.
