04 MARCH 2020 (TORONTO, ON) - Today, Canadian singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist known as BAD CHILD unveils the energetically charged music video for his latest single, Candy, released earlier this year via 21 Entertainment and Universal Music Canada alongside Capitol Records stateside and Virgin Records in the UK. BAD CHILD’s creativity shines throughout the video with the use of his crafted drawings intertwined with psychedelic overlay effects and bright neon lights. The spirited video expresses his authenticity and bold energy, leaving everyone watching with the urge to dance. 


On the new music video, BAD CHILD notes: “I wanted to work on something interdisciplinary and I found it was a perfect medium to explore animation. Like the song I wanted to create a truly multimedia experience.”


“Candy” was included as part of the track listing of the original soundtrack for the Netflix film, To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, the sequel to the most-watched Netflix film of 2018 – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. BAD CHILD appears on the soundtrack as the only Canadian artist with other songs by Chaz Cardigan, Marina, Sofi Tukker and more. Listen to the original soundtrack HERE.


The “Candy” music video arrives as follow up to the latest BAD CHILD project, “I”, released in February.  Presented as a couplet of two tracks; “Candy” and “Behave”, “I” is the first installment of a series of new releases over the course of the year.

BAD CHILD’s eccentric music and unique vision landed him on the festival circuit last summer playing some of the world’s most prestigious line ups including; Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Osheaga. This year is no different as he gears up to join grandson for four Canadian shows in Toronto Montreal and Kingston then heads out with German recording artist NoMBe for 32 dates across North America.  See full list of upcoming shows below. 


BAD CHILD is an artist looking to come to terms with his childhood and his upbringing. After losing his mother at a young age and dealing with heartbreak, he sought refuge from the world in music. Since then he's been breaking new ground with his genre bending and distinguished sound palette. Last year, he released his debut EP Sign Up and became one of Canada’s most exciting exports; profiled in Wonderland Magazine, Complex, HillyDilly, Sidewalk Hustle, Atwood Magazine and the Toronto Star. BAD CHILD's first radio single "Breathing Fire" peaked at top five on alternative radio in Canada plus he has been nominated for 2019 SOCAN Songwriting Prize alongside Dilly Dally, grandson and Kaytranda and was recently chosen as one of 33 artists selected for the Music Video Production (MVP) Project sponsored by RBC and the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television.
