Following the song’s release last month, Another Sky are sharing the new video for soaring anthem ‘Brave Face’ today.
“’Brave Face’ was written for a friend ending a bad relationship,” vocalist Catrin Vincent explains. “I saw so many parallels between her situation and my own. The lyric ‘you put on your brave face, now, girl’ is something an ex once said to me. To me, putting on a ‘brave face’ means hiding struggle and living in denial. I wanted to reclaim those words and transform them into a war cry for myself and her. Instead of telling us to ‘suck it up’, I’m telling us to use our anger instead. The world tells women that if we get angry, we lose our softness and what makes us a woman. That’s not true. I’m asking us to accept our anger as necessary, in order to protect ourselves.”
“The song’s core message is about transforming women’s’ darkest moments into something that empowers them,” she continues. “So we worked with two amazing women, Ingeborg Løvlie (Director) and Olivia Lockwood (Choreographer) to create a video that finds power in what is traditionally seen as vulnerability. Strength has no gender”.
