“Flip Phone” by Brooke Candy

Multi-artist Brooke Candy is back with her first new single in over three years. “Flip Phone” is accompanied by an official self-directed music video.

“I wanted this to be the first song I came back with because I had the most fun making it, and I’m just having fun right now,” Brooke Candy shares exclusively with PAPER. “The video was a challenge to make because I wanted it to come out so perfect. And it did. We rented a rain room in LA and just went all out with the help of PAPER and Gentle Monster. Some parts were inspired by Pamela Anderson in Barbed Wire.”

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Candy first gained notoriety from her work on Grimes’ 2012 music video “Genesis,” followed quickly by high-profile collaborations with such fellow iconoclasts as Charli XCX, Sia, Diplo, Lizzo, Pussy Riot, Sophie, Mykki Blanco, and countless more.

The artist has styled music videos (including Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” and David Guetta & Afrojack Ft. Charli XCX & French Montana’s “Dirty Sexy Money”) and teaching performing arts classes at New York University to collaborations with the Brooklyn Museum and Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) and brand partnerships with MAC Cosmetics and Diesel. Candy has devoted much of her recent creative efforts to the art of tattooing, reinventing herself as a living, breathing cyborg centerfold whose work conjures the retro-futurism of Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama’s robotic pin-ups, fused with archetypal “Sailor Jerry” traditionalism.
