The wonderful Belgian artist BLANCHE (aka Ellie Delvaux) shares the breathtaking visuals for ‘Empire’, out now via [PIAS].
The title track from her debut album, ‘Empire’ is a melancholic pop song blended with traditional instruments (piano, drums, guitar, cello) and modern electro to create an all-encompassing story about shutting down, explaining,
“Empire evokes these people who build a shell to cut themselves off from all their emotions and end up lying to themselves.”
The song was written by her and co-produced by Rich Cooper (Banks, Mystery Jets, Lucy Rose) and François Gustin (Girls In Hawaii), who are also involved in the making of the entire album. The video is a real piece of art put into images by Alexander De Bruycker under the artistic direction of Ludo Beun (Oscar And The Wolf).
Sounds like: BANK, Rhye, Mystery Jets
