Kings Elliot – “Bitter Tonic” music video
“For the video, I saw myself struggling in the water – at the mercy of the freezing ocean – as a way to physically demonstrate the sensation of being overpowered by your emotions. I couldn’t feel my fingers and my limbs for a long time after the shoot. But it’s always worth doing something uncomfortable if it helps people understand my story.” – Kings Elliot explained
‘Bitter Tonic’ is a gorgeous lament on self-destruction that finds Kings Elliot sharing her most vulnerable moments. With sheer bravery, she unveils the curtain on one of the darkest corners of her mind. Also, “Bitter Tonic” is another powerful statement from an artist who isn’t afraid to bare her soul. Furthermore, the song finds a responsible Elliot encouraging listeners that they are not alone.
“I don’t wanna die but I say I do so I can scare myself.”
“‘Bitter Tonic’ is about self-sabotage, self-hatred, and self-destruction. All the things I’ve always felt too uncomfortable to talk about. ‘The bitter tonic is mine’ is the idea of desperately clinging onto my pain, defiantly refusing any help, because at my lowest it’s all I possess. All I have control over.” – Kings Elliot explained
Elliot describes herself as a sick puppy. She has spent her life battling borderline personality disorder and anxiety. The pansexual identifying artist uses her music as a means of healing and exploring her most personal thoughts and fears. So far, she has accumulated over three million collective streams. Also, she has captured the hearts of listeners with her heart-on-sleeve approach to music.
