The multimedia collective, hailing from Canada, return with the second part of their ‘PAIN OLYMPICS’ series

Vancouver-based punk collective Crack Cloud have shared a video for a new track called ‘Crackin’ Up’. You can watch it above.

The track and video mark the second instalment in the group’s ‘PAIN OLYMPICS’ series which they launched last month with ‘The Next Fix’. “We made ‘Crackin Up’ to personify the internet as a driving tool for alienation, indoctrination, and radicalism,” the collective say.

The statement accompanying the new track also provides background to their work as a collective: “Modelled around harm reduction philosophy, we operate as a rehabilitative outlet for a revolving cast of artists based out of the West Coast and abroad. By providing asylum for the disenfranchised, we advocate for a culture of healing and greater intersectional connectivity.”
