Theia has just released the video for her latest single ‘Bad Idea’.
‘Bad Idea’ is a deeply personal song that draws on Theia’s struggle with self-harm. The song’s lyrics are raw and honest but they’re set to an epic soundscape of warm and uplifting synths and a gritty rolling bass.
Co-written with Grammy Award-winning Emily Warren and produced in New York by Sean Turk, ‘Bad Idea’ was released on July 13.
Theia’s vision for the video was to use skating as a metaphor for life: “Sometimes life gets you down and you have hard times. You fall over. Sometimes you dust yourself off and jump up again; other times you need a helping hand,” she explains.
The Kiwi singer and songwriter searched far and wide for an all-girl skate crew to help bring the video to life, and in her search came across a Vogue piece on Chicano style in LA and discovered fashion designer and professional roller skater Sailor Gonzales.
