Video Blue's enchanting pop beats come to light again in 'First Snow', teaching us all to persevere through whatever life throws at us.
Dundalk native Video Blue (real name Jim O'Donoghue Martin) is back with his latest masterpiece, 'First Snow'.
Debuting only a month after the alt-pop artist's previous single 'Weatherspeak', 'First Snow' proves to be a sweet, lighthearted tune that reveals Video Blue's impressive use of ambient electronic bedroom pop combined with the giddy strumming of guitar.
The track features Aoife Powers of Irish band WhenYoung, the sweet soprano of the singer's voice perfectly syncing with the captivating synths of the beat and harmonising with Jim to create a sweet and undeniably catchy chorus.
"We were born to do this/Falling off the edge of the Earth," the singers croon together, as if speaking to each other through the ethereal lyrics.
"This was written in early 2021, and I could immediately imagine Aoife's voice on it," Jim says of the song's release. "I was honoured she sang on it and it completed the conversational idea I had in mind between two people. All the listens and supports for VB mean a great deal, and I hope you enjoy this one."
"The song is an ode to keeping to your head, coming together with a loved one, and weathering the challenges life throws up jointly," Jim continues.
Jim will be heading back to his home of Dundalk to perform in support of Trick Mist on October 18th before returning to base in London to join Meljoann and Noah Yorke at London's Servant Jazz Quarters on October 25th.
