Occasionally you can come across artists who can tip toe into dark tones while still capturing a light in the mix. While few acts can achieve such a feat, it seems that Forever has the ability to do just that. On her new single “Blur” from her upcoming EP Close To The Flame, the artist does just that while holding your attention from beginning to end.
While the track has a darkness to it, it’s also not a downer by any means. The way Forever’s vocals pop and sparkles between the offbeat swirls of sound and the drums offers a beam within the shadowy notes. Including a softer backing vocal and haunting arrangements, the video is just as stark with a black and white color that conveys the mix of the darkness and the light.
The video for “Blur” can be viewed above or on YouTube. Close To The Flame is available to preorder directly from Cascine Records ahead of its February 14 release on multiple formats. The E.P. is also available to presave from all digital streaming services or digital music outlets. Forever is set to appear at The Diving Bell School Social Club on February 22 in Montreal, QC until March 17-21 at SXSW in Austin, TX.
