We have an exclusive video premiere from MADAM (aka Sukie Smith) for her new single ‘When I met You‘ which is released this coming Friday with a launch show at the Sebright Arms, London on Saturday (26th March).
Says Sukie Smith:
“Directed by Devon Dickson, and set in the badlands of Bethnal Green, Hackney Wick and Stratford, it is a late night journey of memory, regret, fury, violence, but ultimately of survival. This song is about a boyfriend getting beaten half to death, taken to hospital, expected to die and what happened while he/ I was there. The film is about the aftermath of the events in the song – the anonymous cab ride giving me the space to relive the events that have just unfolded, joined by the people who ghost ride in my mind as comfort or trouble. It is about the thousands and thousands of stories playing out in this huge city , “Every part of London/ reminds me of someone/ a part of my life that’s not now/ it is not now.”
The song is taken from Madam forthcoming 3rd album, ‘Back To The Sea’ (Shillingboy Records, 1st July). She will tour in June/ July.
