Pop duo Bloom Twins have released a new single, ‘Talk To Me’. The release sees them team up with charities SANE, Samaritans and Crisis Text Line to promote mental health awareness.

“Suicide is the biggest killer of young people in the UK and less than 30% of mental health research is focused on young people, despite 75% of mental illness starting before the age of eighteen”, say the duo, twin sisters Sofia and Anna Kuprienko.

“More than half of young people link mental illness with alienation and isolation”, they go on. “Why are we so scared to talk about it? When and why did this become taboo? It’s OK not to be OK. Music holds a special place for many, listening to our favourite songs provides an escape and allows us to make sense of feelings that often aren’t articulated in daily conversations. Music has a power to change the conversation on mental health”.

As previously reported, Peace also released a new single in partnership with a mental health charity last week. Their song, ‘From Under Liquid Glass’, aims to draw attention to MQ’s campaign to increase funding for research into mental distress in young people.

Bloom Twins are encouraging people to share the hashtag #TalkToMe on social media to raise awareness of mental health issues.¬†Watch the video for ‘Talk To Me’ here:
