The members of Brenda have been involved in the Toronto punk scene for a few years and formed the current 4-piece in 2015. There’s an overall psychedelic sound with punk-inspired drumming that gives the music a burst of energy on heavy choruses. Add in the falsetto vocals for a haunting eeriness that is exemplified on the lead single.

“The single Children is about manipulation and the inevitability of growing up,” says the band. “On the surface level it could be a song about a friendship, or even a relationship, but on another level, the song is about childhood and what happens when people lose childlike innocence. Everyone, at some point, wants to escape the trappings of adulthood and run away to a place where it seems as if time doesn’t exist and age doesn’t matter. This song vacillates between these two states of being.”
