Australian Artist Blake Rose Reveals a New Stunning Single “Movie” From Upcoming debut EP ‘A World Gone By’
Following his single “Casanova”, the new single “Movie” arrives alongside an official music video, which was directed by Sean Hollihan (who previously worked with Blake on the “Casanova” video)
Blake says: “Movie is about putting your life into perspective and questioning your current situation by imagining yourself on your deathbed. For me, it’s about trying to show someone you care about that the relationship they’re in is toxic,” he explains. “Sometimes we tend to wallow in familiarity even if it’s hurtful. It feels too scary to venture outside of that because it’s uncomfortable
but ironically that’s exactly what we’re trying to escape. You don’t have to settle for the life you think you deserve, you deserve so much more.”
Blake explained: “Casanova is about constantly falling too hard and too fast for people because you desperately want to be in a relationship, which ultimately ends up pushing them away. It also explores how we all feel when we’re surrounded by everyone in our lives getting into relationships and the pressure that comes with not wanting to be left alone. It’s easy for us to become entranced by the idea of a person just so we’re not lonely and then find out that they’re not who we expected them to be.”
Both “Movie” and “Casanova” before it offer a first taste of new music to come from Blake in 2021, following a series of official remixes for his hit single “Lost”, including fresh takes on the track from Lucian, Sarcastic Sounds and NASAYA. The original version of “Lost” has already amassed more than 60 million combined global streams to date.
Blake explains. “I wanted to give a visual ride through this emotion by describing the emptiness you feel when stumbling upon reliving certain moments in your life that you once shared together, discovering how lost you are without that person.” Watch the Matt Sav-directed video for “Lost.
Complete with string arrangements, the video showcases the young Australian artist, songwriter and producer’s effortless ability to perform live; with his Buckley-esque vocals, luscious electric-guitar-driven melodies, and knack for writing insanely infectious alternative pop songs. “I try to give listeners an experience,” he reveals. “I take a lot of time with every element to make sure I’m creating a world people can immerse themselves into. Whether the narrative is precise or ambiguous I try to attain a certain level of depth with each song that I hope people can latch onto and let it be as much a part of their own story as it is mine.”
