BLINDᗺUYER releases ‘Did I Fall Apart’

BLINDᗺUYER grew up in Greece, and spend his teenage years singing the folk music of his native land. Eventually, BLINDᗺUYER decided upon the move to the UK and he is currently based in West Sussex, the HQ for his James Blake, Frank Ocean and Travis Scott inspired production’Did I Fall Apart’ is an exciting release that’s packed with electronic sounds and an eerie narrative. We caught up with BLINDᗺUYER to discuss his music and his release:

“With my art director, Aleksandra Giersz, we came up with a concept to form an alter ego that is a contemporary artist who time travels as a teen idol in the late 50’s. The visuals draw inspiration from the 50’s  teen era of Fabian, Frankie Avalon, Bobby Darrin, Paul Anka and Dick Clark’s TV show. We came up with a concept to completely transform me and bring to life a character that resembles that particular era in a satirical, freaky and slightly nostalgic way. The song explores the dark sinister side of being a teen idol and the struggle of keeping up with a perfect image resolving in falling apart inside whilst projecting a clean cut image on the outside even though mentally everything is rotten. The song is filled with synths, ambient soundscapes and up front vocals  in addition to the sinister lyrics that are contrary to the heavy electronic upbeat music that masks the heartfelt lyrics. ‘’
