GENTLE BONES RELEASES
“RUN TELL DADDY” MUSIC VIDEO
(8 June 2016 – Singapore) Singer/Songwriter Gentle Bones will release his brand new music video for ‘Run Tell Daddy’ today at 8pm. The video was directed by legendary local music producer, Leonard Soosay.
“We wanted to put together a music video which was simple, yet also told a story. One we felt most people wouldn’t think would sit well with an R&B track so we tried to create that juxtaposition. It tells a story of a lot of hardships women go through these days – such as domestic abuse and destructive relationships.” – Gentle Bones
Run Tell Daddy is the brand new single taken off his latest #1 selling EP, Geniuses & Thieves. Written by Joel Tan and produced by Yves Rothman (produced for Post Malone, Charli XCX) and Josh Wei, Run Tell Daddy is a brilliant pop spectacle which ushers the listener into his brave new musical world. The 5 track EP is now available for download on all digital platforms: http://getmusic.lnk.to/GeniusesandThieves_EP
