Film: Could these be the coolest kids in the world? Check out Unlocking the truth

Posted by Liv Siddall,

I know you’re probably spending your free time bashing your head on the desk after a certain boy band documentary aired last week, but FEAR NOT! These kids are here to refill your hope in the children of today. Malcolm Brickhouse and Jarad Dawkins are a sixth grade duo from Brooklyn who are really, really into metal. So much so that they’ve formed a band together, and it’s really, really good. They met a few years back at their friend’s birthday party and found they had a mutual love for heavy music – the rest is history. They play instruments, write songs about relationships and what’s getting them down, and when they’re not making music they’re skating around the town or doing impromptu street gigs much to the joy of the locals.

Unlocking the Truth was directed by Luke Meyer and produced by Julia Wilczok and Tom Davis and looks brilliant.
