girl in red has released a new video for cautionary tale, 'bad idea!'

girl in red has released a new video for 'bad idea!'.

“I got the idea for the song after being on and off with a girl," she explains. "I found myself going back to her repeatedly even tho I knew I shouldn't have. For me 'bad idea!' is about wanting something very intensely and going for it without thinking about the consequences.”

Of the video, she adds: “When I write music I see short film scenes in my head. While writing 'bad idea!' I saw lots of red colors and dark bedroom scenes so I knew what I wanted it to look like fairly quick. I worked with my friend Isak Jenssen on the video cause he always understands what I want. He has helped me so much. The video shows what the song is about. Going for something or someone out of pure instincts and lust because it's what you want, and not necessarily what's best for you.”

It's a track from her EP 'chapter 2', which has been bundled together with 'chapter 1' for a new vinyl release. Check out 'bad idea!' below, and catch girl in red live at the Electric Ballroom in London on 29th October.
