Gretchen Shae & The Middle Eight has released a music video for their most recent single. The song, entitled “Skeleton Closet,” is a fiery Post-Punk and Alt-Rock rager that exposes the duality of our digital lives on social media, and how what we see on our screen rarely reflects reality.
Singer Shae had the following to say about the new release:
“‘Skeleton Closet’ is about the duality of social media: the public persona versus the private,” says Shae. “We don’t want people to know we are unhappy, to see the unpleasantries, so we post a photo of some lavish object we bought, or of ourselves smiling with, perhaps, people we loathe. The idea of social media as a means to connect and share all emotions has really backfired, hasn’t it? Instead, we bury our secrets. We put filters on not just our faces; we put them on our lives. And we all do it, to some extent.”
