Earlier this morning, the music video for “Baby Blue” premiered over on Rocksound and it’s probably one of our favorites from this era so far.
Matching the jukebox jam vibes of the song, the guys from Grayscale are all dressed in baby blue (jokes?) suits while Collin sings into a retro microphone. The video takes place in a hospital, with each of the guys performing in different rooms. The viewer gets to watch as the typical hospital scenes unfold around the band.
With harsh hospital lighting and a blue hue to match our on-going color theme, everything feels perfectly chaotic and appropriate for this particular track.
The video ends by the band coming together to jam out the final chorus, with the older man waking up from his hospital bed and joining the older woman to dance. Meanwhile, all the other patients and doctors file into the room and it’s one big hospital party, complete with a sparkling disco ball.
Our favorite Philly band, Grayscale, is taking us on a trip through the rainbow as they drop another brand new single that features a color as its title. “Baby Blue” is track two from their upcoming album Nella Vita, which comes out in just two weeks! Here at Pop Sundae, we can confirm that this track is a certified jam.
And maybe, just maybe we have some exclusive intel that tells us this track is one of the ones the entire band is most excited for fans to hear.
After a few songs that display a newer sound for the band, “Baby Blue” finds itself a little more comfortable within the Grayscale we have all come to know and love. However, this doesn’t come without a twist and a slight play on their typical sound. The bridge features new instruments, as well as some more electronic sounds mixed into their production.
It’s an overall fun, upbeat track that tells us the story of a relationship falling apart and being uncertain about any remaining feelings. Lead vocalist, Collin Walsh‘s voice carries all of the regret and somberness that’s laced throughout the lyrics.
If you listen carefully, you may even recognize the bridge of “Baby Blue.” Back before Grayscale announced their new album, they were posting cryptic videos, some of which featured vocalizations layered over the video. Those vocals came from track two!
I’m so sorry we fell in love
Don’t wanna feel this pain anymore
Safe to say I’m my mother’s son
”Baby Blue” has us excited for the album, we can’t wait to see how these tracks all work together and form a cohesive story. We can already see it piecing together with the four songs we’ve heard.
We’re excited for the album release and set with our pre-orders! Are you?
