Taking his name from his self-described style of music, ‘suburban blues’, Sub Blue continues to offer a fresh take on chilled out, alternative introspective R&B with new single ‘Russian Roulette’.
Already championed by a diverse set of influential platforms ranging from Complex to BBC 1Xtra to Spotify, as well as amassing over half a million streams on his first few single releases, Sub Blue returns with his first 2019 single, taken from his forthcoming project Wilfully Blind.
Featuring West London rapper Incisive acclaimed poet Caleb Femi, and produced by fellow Liverpudlian and long-time collaborator XamVolo, Russian Roulette offers another cautionary tale, directly following on from previous release ‘Think We’re Fine’. Tackling themes of tragedy and the inner-saboteur, Sub Blue ex- plains: “I think that tragedy, like many others, reflects the duality of celebrated recklessness and internal pain vs external perceptions.”
The visual for Russian Roulette plays into this message, examining drug culture and self-destruction, produced by Concrete Films and directed and conceptualised by Liam Broughton of The Playmaker Group.
