“…an intersection of tuneful, hook-oriented music with a flash of attitude that asks the question, “What if Garbage had arrived deep in the heart of 2018?”- PopMatters
Clover The Girl is an alt-pop act from Dallas, TX. Clover The Girl is also known as Brianna Conrado, a singer-songwriter from a small town in Texas who began writing songs and piecing together angry girl poetry/bible verse mash-ups at age 13. Brianna dropped out of Texas A&M University (Biomedical Science) at age 17 then started pursuing a career in music as Clover The Girl in 2016 after working in the metal/alt-rock world. She’s since toured the country, accumulated over 1.5 million streams on Spotify, and petted many dogs.
The video for this song was directed by Jenni Johnson (a badass and collaborator of Clover’s since her first release) and shot by D.O.P CiaraBoniface (Winner of Disney’s search for the “Next Visionary Filmmaker”) and reflects the song well: Giving your all to something even when it’s never going to be enough- The video takes place in a Barbie Box and accentuates the insecurities our culture feeds off of, showcasing different beauty treatments and women physically and mentally pushing themselves to the limit… even if it hurts.
“Even If It Hurts is a song about self inflicted pain and suffering- being addicted to it, dressing it up and rationalizing it. I’m no stranger to toxic relationships with others and with myself. Sticking around for them is something I’d like to do less of, and this song is that first step of calling myself out.” -Clover The Girl
