“Blue is an emotional marathon, as if everything I went through tore me down. Now everything get to me through a blue filter with a changing thickness from one day to another, but which always makes me feel downhearted in the end.I tried to understand why by reviewing everything I’ve been through (my place in this industry, my doubts, the fear to move forward, to grow up), which explains the sweet and angry moments in this song.The music video is a sequence shot built on a performance where I’m facing the camera, shot during the “Blue Hour”. You can see me in the middle of nowhere dressed in a suit and tie with naked legs, boots on my feet and gloves on my hands.With this school/working outfit, I play the part that defines me on a daily basis, sailing between this first of the class child and the women I became. I also wanted to tell those emotions in a direct way and let my body spontaneously speak for me. Laying down like I’m shattered, but always getting back on my feet and fighting to live this life, until I fall again” — Eugénie.
