In This Moment's middle finger to haters
Singer Maria Brink says video for Sex Metal Barbie inspired by "twisted and warped views"
Maria Brink says the video for In This Moment's track Sex Metal Barbie is a middle finger up to the haters.
The album’s title and theme were inspired by the singer’s budding confidence on stage in the face of sexist remarks from punters.
Sex Metal Barbie sees Brink performing double-duty as she also steps behind the camera in a director's role.
She tells Loudwire: “Directing it was a liberating experience. When you write music that you are very passionate about being able to bring the visual aspect of it alive with the music is what ties everything together.
Sex Metal Barbie is all about rising above hate. I used other people’s hatred to create this song and concepts. I really wanted this video to convey that other people’s perceptions of us are just their own twisted and warped views. I wanted a sarcastic and delusional visual to bring this video alive.
“Lastly I want to thank all the people who feel compelled to express negativity toward us for all the inspiration. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
In This Moment have just released a greatest hits collection, Rise Of The Blood Legion – Greatest Hits (Chapter 1). The package features tracks from the group’s first four albums plus material from 2014’s live set Blood At The Orpheum.
The band are currently performing headlining shows on a spring US tour.
