DaphoDILL expresses very different visuals in newly released music video “Scary Night”. Depicted in the ongoing controversy of mental health, DaphoDILL expressed mental health in a dissimilar way. When asked about her visuals, DaphoDILL goes on to say, “People think of mental health in way that defines someone as being crazy and disassociated, not realizing there are various forms of mental health. Mental health can be tripped like a wire from any circumstance that crosses the thresh hold between trauma of adolescence and com-pliable rage. When most think of mental health, the first thing that comes to mind is a depressed kid, or an anxiety filled human; yes that is so, but there is always more to the story of how it connects with someone’s life. Many different life stressors can lead to it, and I wanted to depict it in my music. Although, not fully going to the lengths of completely showing her audience, but more-so a capture of it, and where it can lead. DaphoDILL has also began to form a clothing line based off of the mental health capacity one may have, titling her brand as “Suicide by DaphoDILL”.
