Briggs - Bad Apples

Briggs - Bad Apples
You know the Briggs story, indigenous kid from regional Australia (Victoria). If not, Let me refresh your memory, from the moment BRIGGS dropped his self-released debut EP, the brilliant and groundbreaking Homemade Bombs (2009), it was obvious to everyone that this marked the arrival of a powerful and unique voice on the scene.

His indigenous roots and his rural upbringing in the small country town of Shepparton (Victoria) gave him a perspective like no one else. Powered by a rapid-fire, melodic, direct approach, BRIGGS was as funny as he was deep.

SHEPLIFE is the culmination of generations of observations, experiences and stories. The aggression is there but it’s tempered with a thoughtfulness that is always the separator between the good and great artists. As he said himself: “If The Blacklist was the punch in the face, ShepLife is why I punched you in the face.”

With appearances from Ill Bill, Joyride, Sietta and Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu SHEPLIFE is the album by which Briggs will compared to for his whole career and he likes that, the good ones always thrive on pressure.

About this track...

'Bad Apples was shot last summer just outside of Shepparton at the crossroads just by the Murchison East Railway Hotel & Train station. The video sees Briggs own family playing the forefront in what feels like a deserted, disenfranchised section of a community that's been left to it's own devices.
