BLAKEY – Prism of Love

BLAKEY

Emerging London-based artist, BLAKEY, shares the simple but effective video for ‘Prism Of Love’.

The track is sparse at its core – a seesaw between BLAKEY’s velveteen falsetto/baritone interludes that melt alongside a graceful instrumental.

Opening up about ‘Prism Of Love’, Blakey states,

“It’s a very direct song. I put my most authentic and honest feelings to music. Sometimes I think it’s important to cut through all the bullshit and present exactly how you’re feeling, and not filter yourself for anything or anyone. It’s not vulnerability; it’s liberation.”

Sounds like: Francis and the Lights, Bon Iver, Coldplay
