“Scroll Click” is the second single off of Brenda’s upcoming multi-genre electronic album titled “Box Cutter”
“Getting lost in upward swipe. Stories, photos, pictures, hype. Feeling like your life’s not hip. Compare yourself, can’t get a grip… Stop the tyranny, Inequality, Stop the jealousy, Broken society, Stop the greed, Help those in need, Stop the hate, It’s not your life to take.” – Brenda
Hi Brenda, welcome back to VQS. Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration for this song?
Released on 7/15/20. “Scroll Click” is an Alternative Hip Hop track inspired by the observation of societal addiction to social media. It is a track inspired by the falsehood of associating your worthiness as a human being with being ‘popular’ ‘famous’ or ‘important’ based on numeric value alone. It is a track inspired by how the ethereal, invisible magic of music has been forced and squashed into a huge visual box for easier consumption. It is a track inspired by how deceiving looks can be in the manicured reality of social media and how participation in this false reality can not only lead to depression but how it can also lead one to check out from participating in actual reality. It is a track inspired by the dark realities and injustices happening constantly all around us. I created “Scroll Click” for myself to release thoughts and feelings of sadness, anger, and frustration. And now I share it with you.
What is your favorite part of the song?
Each verse is unique. The chorus is sarcastic and playful. The beat is minimal and experimental. It sounds nothing like anything I have released before. And I love it.
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? Upcoming events?
I have a music video for “Scroll Click” as well that will come out on July 22nd.
