Kid Brunswick celebrates the release of new EP The Fall: Part 1 with the release of a music video for ‘Depression.’
With the new EP, which was released on Friday, Kid Brunswick marks the beginning of a new era in his musical career. With stylistic sensibilities shaped by the likes of Nirvana and Linkin Park in his teen years, as well as artists in the OVO Sound scene in Canada such as PartyNextDoor and Majid Jordan, Kid Brunswick explores the meeting point of hip-hop, R&B and rock. Making use of trap-beats, melodic hooks and riffs hailing from formative rock influences, he is one of the artists that explores the current musical landscape where popular music genre barriers have become more and more blurred.

Detailing the origins of ‘Depression’, Kid Brunswick reveals “I started writing this song in 2020 during the pandemic. The original version was going to be my first single under Kid Brunswick, however I pulled it back and decided to work on the song a little more, because for a song titled “depression”, I wanted to pay more attention to the lyrics.”
Expanding on his thoughts when constructing the track, he adds “Lyrically & melodically, this track has 3 sections: Chaos, Euphoria & Death. I wrote this song to explain the process of what happens when someone who is mentally ill can experience when they’re not receiving the right treatment. I’ve lost friends to suicide. I know what not wanting to be here feels like. I just thought it would be cool if I opened up lyrically and spoke to people who feel the same way.”
Having just played a sold-out comeback performance at London’s Omeara, Kid Brunswick looks to move toward future live dates to continue his goal of garnering a wide reputation as a vital force in modern British music.
