Premiere: Scatterchild – Tough Love

Scatterchild are a Manchester-based indie rock act who I first discovered in July this year and I’m very pleased to be sharing their new video for the first time anywhere in the world. It’s called Tough Love.

By Graeme Smith

Starting with a few lonesome bars of solo keys, the expressive vocals come in as does gentle synth and drums. Tough Love is a raw and emotive track that leaves the listener nowhere to hide. Paired with its intense video, it’ll move you.

The video sees the band take on a bruised and battered version of themselves, symbolising being strong in the face of adversity and losing. Ultimately, the message is that it’s not the winning or losing that matters, it’s accepting the situation as it is.

You can see the video for Tough Love for the first time anywhere below.
