Josie Proto may have just launched her music career last year, but it’s about time you familiarize yourself with this rising UK popstar. With a girl-next-door aura, Proto really does make us feel like she’s our best friend with every fantastic release. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and sing along to Proto’s playful new single, “Problem Child.”
On “Problem Child,” Josie Proto explained,
“‘Problem Child’ is about wishing I could tell my younger self to enjoy being a bit cheeky, because you don’t get away with it as an adult! As a kid, a lot of my cheekiness was punished out of me, and now as an adult, people accredit my creative side to being a bit of a wild child. I wish the same people that praised my wild side now, didn’t punish it as a kid, who knows what I could’ve become if it wasn’t so eagerly stamped out.”
An impeccable vocal-driven track, “Problem Child” is singable, charming, and most importantly, worth your time. For any of you who feel like you’re growing up too fast, “Problem Child” will remind you to enjoy your youth and appreciate life to the fullest. To top it off, the accompanying visual is filled with pirate costumes, bubbling science experiments, and colorful classroom parties.
“Originally the production was laid back and chilled out, however we decided to take it in a much stronger and angrier route when it came to the final mix. I have never been this excited to sing a song live.”
