By Alex Brown - 8.11.17

Suffer The Children have released the video for their latest single, 'Someone To Lose.' This follows the release of their recent single “Killing Hands” which was favourably received by fans and critics alike, garnering support from the likes of The Vancouver Sun and CLASH Mag. Grammy Award-winning producer Chin Injeti who in partnership with DJ Khalil has worked with a host of influential artists such as Drake, Eminem, Aloe Blacc, Raury, Joey Badass, The Clipse, Kanye West, Dr. Dre, and Jay-Z heads up production, alongside Rian Peters who has shared stages with the likes of Black Twang and Lauryn Hill at Montreux Jazz Festival and performed on legendary TV shows such BBC’s Top of the Pops, ITV’s CD:UK, and Channel Four’s POPworld and multitalented artist Shallom Johnson whose lifelong connection with art, music, and the written word provides an unconventional aesthetic both visually and lyrically. Suffer The Children performed at last year's FVDED IN THE PARK FESTIVAL, among headline artists Travis Scott, Jack U, Bryson Tiller, and Kaytranada.

Operating from both London and Vancouver, the left-field R&B / electronica trio found common ground in the need to express themselves and experiment as friends and creators. Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer Chin has Grammy Awards to boast for his work with Drake, Eminem and Aloe Blacc, and has shared stages with the likes of The Fugees, The Roots, TLC, and James Brown. Rian is a consummate performer who has toured, performed and provided vocals for the likes of Estelle, Leona Lewis, CeeLo Green, and five-time Grammy winner Michael McDonald. Dancer, painter and poet Shallom, aka Indigo is a skilled visual artist and curator, having worked with a span of top muralists (Faith47, David Shillinglaw, Scott Sueme, Mak1one, Kofie, Remi/Rough) and participated in major street art festivals around the globe (Living Walls ATL, Articulate:Baltimore, Vitry Jam, Project Amsterdam Street Art, MANIFESTO Festival).

The ethos of Suffer The Children lies in honest collaboration and intelligent songwriting - without a specific end goal in mind. Inspired by aspects of modern trap and 80’s alternative pop, STC’s influences include Phil Collins, New Order, Lou Reed, Coco Rosie, Ane Brun, Bon Iver, SBTRKT, Kanye West and Little Dragon.

A downtempo, mellow track, ‘Someone To Lose’ is moody and perfectly executed. Suffer The Children like their tempo’s slow, their sound crisp and their vocals velvety, thus exerting their compelling effect.

Speaking of the track STC said: “Someone To Lose explores impermanence. It is a meditation on the entropy that accompanies us at every turn – our relationships, careers, and reputations; our bodies & minds, and the things we create with them. We spend our whole lives following this urge to build and build and at the end there's only the one small door. And nothing else can come with us.”
