Today’s video of the day is a hold-on-to-your-feels lip-trembler from NI’s Queen of Queer Susie Blue. ‘Love You Anyway’ is taken from her forthcoming EP Boys Boys Boys[going head-to-head with Sabrina? -Ed]. The self-directed video was created after Susie put a call out on social media for people to send in short clips that represent their time spent whilst isolating. Check out the chonky calico cat at 44 seconds who completely owns everything*.
“Love You Anyway is a love letter to the North of Ireland, my home. There are things I love but many things I want to change. Its about being somewhere and feeling the need to flee to bigger and better things but realising you also want to improve your home, to make it better, to make it the beautiful place it can be, however you can. The beauty of the song can be interpreted in many ways, it’s a love song in general and touches on mental health issues and addiction. It was an important song for me to write and I poured my heart into it.“
* Rumours that including a fiesty cat in your pop video is a instant golden ticket to LW Video of the Day stardom are kinda vaguely denied.
Northern Ireland’s Susie Blue has released a third single from her debut LP ‘Didn’t Mean To Care’ due for release in October 2018. The single ‘May Ninth’ explores, she says:
“A love story in 3 minutes, the ups, the downs, the promises and the moment it’s broken. May Ninth is the date a tragic love started and ended on the same date one year later. Two women whose worlds collided and imploded all at once.”
Northern Irish Susie Blue has released a single, ‘She’s A Keeper’, taken from her forthcoming debut LP ‘Didn’t Mean To Care’. For fans of polished 90s-esque indie rock, and cards-on-the-table romance (erm, that’s all of us yeah?).
“Its a song about the coolest woman you’ve ever met, she is so effortless and there doesn’t seem tobe anything she can’t do. In the words of Peaches “the boys wanna be her, the girls wanna be her; but also you just fall in love with her like I did”
