Canadian rocker Vanessa Huneault, better known as AKA V, just dropped the video for her latest single "Last Chance." "Last Chance" is written by AKA V, Patrick Phillips, and Scott Greene, who also produced the track at his studio in Edmonton, Alberta.
This heavier, grittier, more aggressive track is unlike anything that V has put out so far. "Last Chance" is sure to have music lovers of all ages grooving to it's pounding beats. This amazing up-and-comer said that "Last Chance" marks a change in her music that she feels fully reflects her and her personality.
"I've always had a pretty edgy image that doesn't match my nice personality. So I've finally said to myself, 'I don't care what others think me or my image, or even if the two go together.' It's the same thing for my music."
She also said that "Last Chance" was inspired after dealing with depression and her decision to break herself out of the downward spiral. She hopes that audiences can find some semblance of themselves within the track, and some comfort during difficult times.
The video for "Last Chance" is a careful reflection on the meaning of the track. Filmed in Toronto and Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, the video is an unsettling and unapologetic look at someone battling through mental health issues.
Originally from Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, a small town about seven hours northwest of Montreal, AKA V set out on her own to Toronto, Ontario to pursue her dream of becoming a musician. Determined to make it in the demanding music industry, she learned Audio Production and Engineering so that she could record and master her own tracks. While she worked through her education, V also joined the Canadian rock band OzGoode and went on a cross-country tour with them as their singer.
Her journey inspired her debut single "Always Go Home" released in April 2016. Since she has blasted her way onto the indie music scene, this young musician has been shaking up the airwaves all over the world. She has since released two other singles, "Sunlight" and "Gone," and has performed over 80 live shows throughout Canada, the US, and the UK.
