Video: EMA – Take One Two
EMA’s video for new single “Take One Two” is made up of recycled footage of Erika M. Anderson and her friends in a South Dakota trailer park in the mid-1990s, “dressing up, hanging out, making up funny skits.”
It’s also an inspirational message to bullied teens: “This is especially remarkable as I know what was going on outside those plywood walls: getting called names, shoved into lockers, and threatening to get our asses kicked for being queer or punk or just plain weird,” EMA writes. Accordingly, she’ll offer the proceeds from the single, which is out digitally today, to the anti-bullying non-profit the Jamie Isaacs Foundation.
EMA continues, “This one’s for all the weirdos out there: cherish your friends, fuck the haters and let your freak flag fly.”
