NEWS: Voidie releases new music video for ‘pushing daisies’ in light of new EP, ‘claustrophobic’

Breaking barriers in the ever growing scene of Hyperpop, Lloyd Garret, AKA Voidie, has released his new single ‘pushing daisies’, taken from his new EP, claustrophobic. Growing alongside Hyperpop artists such as Bladee and Yung Lean, Voidie is on course to become the next generation of electronic music that features grunge-like sounds with impressive vocal production and rigorous lyricism. After making music for several years whilst pursuing a career as an actor, he is on course for becoming the next big deal. 

Throughout ‘pushing daisies’, loud growling bass sounds syncopate alongside electronic drum machines and synthesised vocals. The lyrics are heartfelt, and are about his own problems with mental health. He writes, “I want this to be an escape for people”, Voidie says of the project. “This body of work is a downward spiral into my mind – a deep dive into my battle with addiction, anxiety and depression,” he elaborates: “conflicted thoughts which left me feeling claustrophobic. As much as it was exhausting pouring my inner burdens and negativity into a microphone, I was relieved to finally and truly express myself and step out of my comfort zone”.

‘pushing daisies’ has been released alongside a high quality music video that features fast moving visuals and black & white colour grading, which further demonstrates the themes of anxiety, depression and addiction. The video is a collaboration between Voidie and director Ollie Steer. Steer explains, “pushing daisies’ is a dark and morbid take on a generally light and happy genre. Following our last video, this one fills the role of evil twin and offers a harsh contrast to the previous release. This nightmarish yet charming story unfolds giving an insight into mine and Voidie’s minds. We strived for a piece of art: a collaboration, a duality – and that’s what we achieved”.

‘pushing daisies’ is out now and available to stream everywhere.
