Final Child has released the video for “Afterlife” today. Watch it now below!
Jen Akerman, a.k.a. dark-pop performer Final Child’s self-produced debut collection is home to seven slick, moody tracks that evoke the tense, passionate pop of fellow Scandinavian singers Tove Lo and Lykke Li. On the electro-tinged duet “Afterlife,” she and fiancé Tom Payne of The Walking Dead trade verses about staying together in the event of an apocalypse.
“I wrote ‘Afterlife” because I wanted a fun song — I tend to make more moody and darker music,” Akerman told Billboard, “It still has a dark story; It’s about the problems we have in the world and the world ending, but it has a lighter and a bit poppier tone. And it’s ultimately about coming together with someone who you’re looking forward to meeting in the afterlife. So it’s about having connection and chemistry with someone on this planet and knowing you have this afterlife from the memories.”
