Léa Sen – I Feel Like I’m Blue [Video]
Singer, songwriter, and producer Léa Sen offers with “I Feel Like I’m Blue” another exquisite taste from her upcoming EP, You Of Now Pt. 1, out on May 20th via Partisan Records. The song might be the EP’s most wistful track yet its melancholy is beautifully chill and absolutely irresistible!
Speaking about her EP, London-based Léa Sen says:
You know when you have a concept or an idea in your head and never really act on it? That’s what ‘I Feel Like I’m Blue’ was to me. I felt like I was writing too much about the past or the present (which is already the past) and I got stuck in memories and vanished promises, so I needed to write something about tomorrows. It’s really just a conversation with my future self. “Do you finally get this right? Do you eventually let this go? I know you still feel that way, it’s cool. I don’t expect perfection from you.”
Talking a bit more about her upcoming EP she adds:
This song is key in my EP, it was the first song I made out of the five. The start of so much work I did on myself while making the tunes alone in my room. The first production I made that I felt proud of. I’m glad past Léa made that song so I can share it today.
The accompanying video is directed by Molly Burdett and features a chameleon named Blu, and Léa Sen explains:
In the video, Blue the chameleon is an extension of me and we’re going through the motions together. It was also a hint at the challenge of being an immigrant in London and sometimes having to (whether you’re conscious of it or not) change yourself to fit this foreign picture you’re now a part of. Shout out to Blue though, he was a legend on set, so calm and friendly.
“I Feel Like I’m Blue” marks track number five on Léa Sen’s EP. Keeping the best for last? Judge for yourself and watch the beautifully chill video, and enjoy “I Feel Like I’m Blue,” our Song Pick of the Day:
