EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Eva X confronts mistreatment in her new song and video 'Whipping Girl'
Everyone can relate to a situation in which they were mistreated; whether through a romantic relationship, political tensions within a family, or unwanted harassment at work. On the relationship side, dark electronic artist Eva X has been through it. Like many creative musicians within the field, exercising her artistic prowess is a mental relief like getting a giant weight off of your chest. Singing her heart out, Eva X's latest music video and single finds herself in an empowering state as she belts out her frustrations from previous experiences. Utilizing a mix of her signature darkened synthpop and synthwave Eva X weaves a tale of self-confidence. You can stream the video for 'Whipping Girl' directly below.Dec 27 2021
Whipping Girl marks the first time I’ve directed and shot my own music video. I wanted to create a more story-based video, so I put the call out to my friend and fellow artist Persephone Bleeds to help create the video. She immediately jumped in with ideas, and helped enlist some of Calgary’s best dark artists to bring our sexy witchy tale to life. The video was edited by Erik Gustafson, marking our fourth video we’ve collaborated on for Eva X, and the first of many more that we’ll be creating together as Erik Gustafson Cinematography.
And, of course, there’s a new song associated with the video as well! Whipping Girl is one of my favorite songs from the upcoming album. It’s kind of the resident breakup song. It’s about looking someone in the eye and telling them you won’t take their bad treatment any longer, about wanting better and being willing to leave to get it. Once again, I worked with my coproducers Shane and Adam to flesh out the music. Together, we created a sexy, midtempo synthwave track to both dance and cry to. -Eva X

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
