    VIDEO FEATURES MLNY PARSONZ OF ROYAL THUNDER

    BAND ON TOUR WITH BADFLOWER IN THE U.S.

    Toronto-based alt rock band BRKN LOVE have released the video for the new single “Like a Drug.”

    Songwriter and frontman Justin Benlolo says, “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 continues, “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!”

    He finishes, “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.”

    “Like a Drug” follows previous single “Deadweight,” which BBC Radio One’s Indie Show presenter Jack Saunders called “the new age of rock and roll.”
     
    Meanwhile, BRKN LOVE are gearing up to play a number of shows across North America in support of Badflower.
