2012 Bid Adieu Share Chill, Jazzy Single "Something To Tell You"
Collective 2012 Bid Adieu shares their latest single "Something To Tell You" from their debut album "We died in 2012. This Is Hell," due out June 7.
Jordan Clark, a member of the collective, who really brings something special to the video in his blonde wig and baby pink hoodie, says:
"As it stands, We Died In 2012: This Is Hell serves an open-letter to the internet set to release Friday, June 7th. “Something To Tell You” is 2012 Bid Adieu’s third single off their debut album. Sung by Gray Hall, “Something To Tell You” is a conversation with someone who the singer no longer has a relationship with. Frustrated and seeking answers that he is not receiving, the singer ultimately knows that he’ll have to leave the situation (“I’ll move to a city”). While 2012 Bid Adieu’s album begins with a more generic look at escapism in the internet-age, "Something To Tell You," the final song on the album, looks at the singer’s own struggles with escapism."
The goal of 2012 Bid Adieu is to collectively to empower and fulfill each others’ ideas to their fullest capacity. Because the group believes anyone can be an artist, inclusion is an important value in their approach to art. There’s a common belief that “some of us have it, some of us don’t.” Implicit in that statement is the assumption that most of us fall into the latter category. 2012 Bid Adieu’s goal is to expand the definition of artist, and change listeners relationships to creating, and their relationship with themselves.
2012 Bid Adieu began as a subconscious collaboration through years of friendship. Throughout this time, passions began to merge. 2012 Bid Adieu began with Jordan Clark and Gray Hall (producers/vocalists). Afterwards, they connected with Jeff O’Neal (videographer, creative director) who had previously collaborated with Clark on a music video titled “Path Forked Years Ago.” It was only a matter of time before Clark and Hall welcomed their other bandmates, Jachary (bassist), Dillon Treacy (drummer), and Donovan Duvall (keyboardist). In the process of creating digital shorts, comedy, sketches and clothing, 2012 Bid Adieu, brought in other players, such as, Alex Pyle (mixing engineer), Lewis Gutierrez (Actor), Alyza Enriquez (videographer), Monisade Fabunmi (barber, stylist), Amelia Capaz (writer, meme curator), Ambra Parker (model), Sasha Mcnair (dancer), Anna Wotring (dancer) and Prashast Thapan (3D animator).
Forging their own genre of anti-pop meets electronic hip-hop, 2012 Bid Adieu takes the scene, seeking to upset traditional means of production. Individually, the members have gained recognition from outlets and media sites such as Def Jam Recordings, Tru Thoughts Records, Afropunk, Okayplayer, Blavity, KEXP-FM, Earmilk, The Masked Gorilla, Indiecurrent, The Deli Magazine, THRDCoast, Respect Magazine, BBC Radio 6, Revive Music and more.
2012 Bid Adieu represents a euphonious collaboration, not to be defined, constantly evolving-transcending. 2012 Bid Adieu is a collective that insists on redrawing lines, and reclaiming the idea the “artist.” With their upcoming release, We Died In 2012: This Is Hell, the imaginative crew introduces the world to a fresh ideology, and music that speaks directly to the Nintendo Generation, but can appreciated by listeners of all kinds.
