On a dismal Melbourne day BIRDZ and his crew brought some serious game to the streets of Melbourne’s north side with his powerful new video clip for ‘THIS SIDE’.
Featuring cameos from Bad Apples boss man BRIGGS and stable mate NOOKY and the most important of all his one year old son. The clip inspires excellence no matter the adversity. Set amongst the iconic Richmond commission flats and industrial streets of the Melbourne music mecca Fitzroy, the clip is a challenge; a challenge to rise up against the odds, bring your A game and know you can achieve what you set your mind too. Katherine singer Serina Pech who features on the record brings home the message with her soulful chorus “Ain’t nobody gonna get in my way, rise and shine it’s a brand new day, we going up on this side, we going up on this side’ .
THIS SIDE is the MC’s testament to the integrity of Bad Apples Music and the key driver of the record label and the signed artists – Black Excellence.
“This Side is about letting people know where I’m at as an artist. Being a part the Bad Apples family and movement is something that I’m extremely proud of and I really wanted a dope visual that represented that feeling and showcased Black Excellence” BIRDZ
BIRDZ drops single ‘THIS SIDE featuring SERINA PECH’
BIRDZ has spoken to Australia’s heart with his singles ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘Rise’, discussing the hardships and discrimination that Australia’s Indigenous community experience.
With legions of fans rising up, BIRDZ is ready to launch his debut album, ‘TRAIN OF THOUGHT’ with lead single, ‘THIS SIDE’. It’s an upbeat, shoulder rolling, groover! All attitude and statement of intent. It’s an anthem for world domination by the man who’s not afraid to go for it and ruffle some feathers if he has to, dissing the haters.
THIS SIDE is the MC’s testament to the integrity of Bad Apples Music and the key driver of the record label and the signed artists – Black Excellence. BIRDZ teamed up with fellow Katherine (NT) singer songwriter Serina Pech who joins his melodic rhymes with smooth singalong chorus.
“It’s a celebration of the Bad Apples Music movement and our presence in Australia’s music industry – planting the flag so to speak and letting everyone know that we’re here to stay.” – BIRDZ
