Precious Child Releases NSFW Video for “My Little Problem” & “Phantom” Off of ‘TRAPPED’ EP

george

Cinematic Progressive Industrial Artist Precious Child has released a highly politically charged, NSFW Official Music Video for the single “My Little Problem” off of his TRAPPED EP. Directed by Brazilian born and LA based artist Cade, “My Little Problem” was originally premiered on Paste Magazine.

“My Little Problem” is a song and music video about self discovery, synthetic nature, and sexuality. It is a collaboration between Precious Child and the director Cade.

“This video explores the current pop culture fascination with freeing ourselves from the decay and pain that is contingent with inhabiting a physical body. The question is, if technology allows us to transcend into conscious machines, unable to feel pain, will we feel anything at all but a pressing sense of existentialism? Vaporwave, goth, emo, and kitsch culture were an influence to this project as well as campy sci fi thrillers like David Cronenberg’s Videodrome.” – CADE

Precious also released “Phantom,” an experiential music video that illuminates the protagonist in “My Little Problem,” which was itself premiered on AntiHero Magazine:

TRAPPED is the 3rd studio album of Precious Child. Recorded in Los Angeles, TRAPPED is an EP featuring reinterpretations of tracks from Bloody Knees and ESCAPE as well as original tracks.

“Many of my songs have a common ancestor; when I write, the song I am writing often inspires another, and another, and another. Old ideas inspire new songs and new songs make songs out of old ideas. TRAPPED references these ouroboroses of creativity. I have been in the studio for many months working on an LP and this EP happened amidst the recording for the LP. See what I’m getting at? Hard to tell where the head and the tail begins. We have a desperate need for a reason to exist and art is my reason.” – Precious Child

Track List:
1. Phantom
2. My Little Problem (Violet Door)
3. Entity
4. No Such Thing as Time
5. The Past (Be Me Again)
6. The Past (Instrumental)

Precious Child’s debut 2015 metal album Bloody Knees was produced in Los Angeles, CA by Ulrich Wild, the multiplatinum producer known for his work with White Zombie, Deftones, Dethklok, and more.

ESCAPE, Precious Child’s second album is a soundtrack that was composed for the Neil Gaiman biopic Dream Dangerously. To accompany the release of ESCAPE, Precious collaborated with Alabama artist Yonderpuss to create videos for the songs “Magic is Real” and “To Need“.

Precious Child Releases Stunning Official Video for “Magic Is Real” From Nail Gaiman Biopic ‘Dream Dangerously’

Cinematic Progressive Industrial Artist Precious Child has released a visually stunning Official Video for “Magic Is Real,” from his Escape album, which is also featured in the Neil Gaiman biopic Dream Dangerously. Premiered on Bloody-Disgusting, “Magic Is Real” was directed by Mikki Morrison who states, “Art is alive and it is the music we hear when we are alone with ourselves. When we share our music with others, we are truly communicating. Magic is real. It is what we make it. What we let it be. Our magic is how we piece together the fragments of ourselves that we find along the way of our own lives.”
.

“Magic is Real” was a piece of music that I wrote on my birthday. I was born in the early morning an hour before sunrise and I finished the composition around 3AM. I thought it was perfect for what I felt was of the most important scenes in the documentary- the one that talks about the magic in Neil’s work. I personally experience magic in many ways, but most strongly in the wilderness and in art and music.

For the video, I found Mikki’s visual work online through a mutual friend and loved how she had an eye for the experiences between experiences; the details and split second flashes of beauty in life that we all experience but sometimes ignore. I approached her about collaboration, sent her the song, and asked her to do her thing and capture footage of what she sees. In editing I took it a little further and repositioned clips within the screen to force the viewers eyes to move around and actively look- the same way that she does. The subject matter of my art is generally focused on suffering and pain and vengeance and darkness but here’s my ray of sunshine. The song and video are my gift for people to find magic and beauty.Precious Child

Precious Child Releases ‘Escape’ LP Featuring Music From Neil Gaiman Biopic Dream Dangerously

Cinematic Progressive Industrial Artist Precious Child has shifted gears from his dark rock roots to release his exquisite instrumental LP, ESCAPE. Featuring music from the Neil Gaiman biopic Dream Dangerously, ESCAPE was originally premiered on Bloody-Disgusting.

Since this was for Neil’s biopic I decided to consciously approach it as a storytelling exercise. I’m a huge reader with a particular affinity for mythology, folk tales, and legends. In my little circle of personal associates I’m known for my ridiculously fragile and sizable pile of antique Arabian Nights books. Obviously, Neil’s stories get along real well with me. I love the intensity, carnal elements, and scale of his books. My overall favorite is Sandman which I read start to finish non stop over two months of summer while holed up in an exes house. There’s a lot of violence, tragedy, and peril in his stories. There is also a lot of beauty and moments of comfort and intimacy.Precious Child
