Paris based, singer, songwriter, and producer Broken Back has captured his fans with his hypnotic and whimsical vocal styling, combined with offbeat storylines on successful releases like “Halycon Birds”, “Happiest Man On Earth,” “Young Love,” “Breathe Slow” and his heavily supported collaboration with Klingande on “Wonders.” Broken Back’s penchant for enchanting listeners has firmly established himself as a provocative and versatile talent.
He once again delivers in true storyteller fashion on his new video and single. Carrying a strong social message, both lyrically and visually, “She Falls” is taking on a larger mission to shed light on women who are suffering from domestic violence.
“She Falls” is a collaborative effort between Jérôme Fagnet aka Broken Back and Black Dot France. In his own words, “We wanted to use that song, that video, to give a platform to the voices of people actually putting the work on the field on those issues, to get them heard.”
Going on to state, “Last year, 50,000 women worldwide were killed by intimate partners or family members. Breaking the silence is a complex and winding resolution. ‘She Falls’ echoes one woman’s distress trying to depict the psychological dependence rooted in the private sphere. With this song, my hope is essentially to prompt as I can, a collective awareness on that matter.”
Produced by Film Directing Duo Stef and Wyt, the pair take us through a woman’s life locked in her own cage of silence. A dollhouse serves as a metaphor for being trapped in a state of fear for speaking out. Stef and Wyt share, “We wanted to play with appearances with something seducing and venomous at the same time. We shot with a totally free camera, reversing the horizon line in a way that all landmarks are lost and that this frozen woman stands out by her loneliness, trapped.”
