Chandra Oppenheim got her start as a post-punk wunderkind in New York’s avant-garde scene in the late 1970s and 80s. Today, Chandra — the band — have unveiled a new remote video for the song “Shut In / Shut Out” based on a demo she originally recorded at age 14 in 1983.
“I don’t have a clear memory of what inspired it,” says Chandra in a release. “My guess is that it was meant to be a message to people who felt they were on the periphery. I was giving advice based on my experiences at middle school of feeling excluded and rejected.”
