Charlene Soraia has released the follow up to her recent single and music video ‘Where’s My Tribe‘. Her new video ‘Tragic Youth’ is directed by The Rest (slowthai, Kojey Radical, AZEKEL) and it explores the lives of several South London teenagers on their journey to find their “tribe” and sense of belonging.

When I heard the music, it reminded me of the beauty and melancholy of growing up and becoming an adult. There is a lot bubbling up under the surface for these characters but they rarely open to each other even though they get together. It’s this thing we do up and down the country where nobody really addresses their issues but instead bee-lines for the weekend every week to get drunk and high to escape. There’s numbness going on. We’re more ready to be vulnerable on Twitter & Instagram than with each other sometimes.

‘Tragic Youth’ is taken from Soraia’s forthcoming ‘Where’s My Tribe’ set for release on January 25th 2019 via Peacefrog (José González, Little Dragon). Charlene writes her music in her flat with no edits, no autotune, and in one take. She is truly unique and her music a joy to unveil.
