From mental health to money problems, from social media to Star Wars, BLYE isn’t afraid to explore slightly more unusual topics with her music. In fact, disguising songs about heavier topics as light, harmless love songs is her favourite way to write. Originally a classically trained musician, it wasn’t until she made her move from sleepy Shropshire to the hustle and bustle of London that BLYE discovered the inspiration to start songwriting.
As the sole writer, performer, producer, and mix engineer of her music, as well as her own graphic designer, BLYE is a DIY artist through and through. Built on acoustic foundations, she primarily creates synth driven pop music which is atmospheric but danceable. Having grown up listening to everything from Burt Bacharach to Donna Summer to Utada Hikaru, BLYE draws on multiple influences during her songwriting process. The result is a musical journey through styles and genres, sometimes taking a few unexpected twists and turns along the way.
After overcoming various medical issues, BLYE is ready to make her mark with her debut single, ‘Money’. Written immediately in response to news of rising university fees, BLYE sings about the frustration of living in a world run by money when all you want to do is make music – a sentiment we can all relate to from time to time.
