After their debut EP « Masquerade » reaching over 70 000 streams, the french alternative rock band HEY LIFE comes back with a brand new single on January 10th, 2020: “BLUE”.
At the crossroads of alternative rock, synth-pop and hip-pop, the band pushes the limits of its influences by incorporating heavy riffs, aerial choirs and catchy vocals, which are integral parts of their identity.
The song describes a situation we all know: escape the everyday grind through excess to fight depression. It tells the story of someone’s night out who’s trying to fight the blues by bringing everyone down with him in his craze. Through its lyrics, the track highlights people sempiternal need for excess to have fun and feel alive.
HEY LIFE chose to collaborate with Disclosure Productions (LANDMVRKS, GOROD, Halflives, The Sunday Sadness) to stage this situation. The music video shows the evening of a disillusioned waiter who gets carried away with euphoria as he tastes a mysterious blue drink. Between hypnotic moves and gravity-defying breakdance acrobatics, this waiter played by the dancer Theddy Joseph invites us bit by bit in his dancing craze and might just make us want to take a sip of this mysterious beverage as well…
“What we greatly appreciate with these french guys is their ambition, their freshness and especially their contagious energy!”
“It’s HEY LIFE’s turn to put some pep in our lives tonight. The band has a fresh and dynamic sound that definitely puts us in a good mood “
