Lifted from her forthcoming album, ‘Hysteria’.

With her new Aaron Dessner-produced album ‘Hysteria’ set for release on 7th October via Sacred Bones, Indigo Sparke is sharing new single ‘Blue’.

“This is one of the closest songs to my heart I have ever written,” Indigo explains. “It was a freak accident that came out all in one go, the words, it just didn’t stop pouring out. Everything in shades of Blue. I had just gotten back to Australia from New York and the pandemic hit shortly after. I was in some sort of strange altered state of reality, deep in a grief wave and a relationship death. It felt like something was trying to purge itself out of me. Maybe rage. Maybe hope. Maybe love. I can’t fully explain how deeply I feel this song inside of me. It just is. Like my blood pumping through my veins.”

On the track’s accompanying video, director Angela Ricciardi shares, “This video is an ode to a city that has shown me continual moments of both wonder and ferocity. Indigo came to me with the initial idea of creating a video that follows her walking throughout the city, and I think that ‘Blue’, in all of its beauty and severity, is a fitting soundtrack to that universal experience. My creative approach was informed by characteristic time quality: seeing everything in a stage of becoming, which requires simultaneous patience and immediacy. I like when something forces me to look. Like falling in love, when time slows and you notice the dance of life that we all belong to. That’s where the magic happens.”
