BLÜ EYES Details Post-Breakup Reflections On New Single “Blame”
LA-based singer, songwriter and producer BLÜ EYES details post-breakup reflections on new single “Blame”.
It’s been just over two years since BLÜ EYES released her impressive debut single “Friendly Fires”, an outstanding alternative pop single that has already been streamed over 30,000 times on Spotify alone despite being an independent release. Since then she has been making her mark with various DJ collaborations and other original releases.
Her new single “Blame”, taken from her upcoming debut album due to be released later this year, is another emotionally-driven pop masterpiece co-produced with James Pinzi. BLÜ’s vocals has always been her secret weapon, and on “Blame” she delivers an excellent vocal performance as she sings about the unraveling of a failed relationship, and imagines the situation from the opposite person’s perspective.
“‘Blame’ was definitely a labor of love in the writing and production process. My co-writer James and I got together and came up with a vibe and some chords we liked, but I got a bit stuck when it came to the lyrics. I had so many different emotions on my mind at the time, and I think I was still figuring out specifically what I was trying to say with the sonic world we had created. I wound up changing the key and tempo about 3 times before I landed somewhere that jogged my creativity into the right place, and it was definitely worth the wait. I’m so happy with how it turned out. Not to mention Keith Armstrong KILLED IT on the mix and Justin Shturtz brought out the finishing touches beautifully in mastering” — BLÜ EYES.
