Louie Blue, the soulful Finnish newcomer who we discovered just before summer, has released his second single and video – Blue Genes. The single lives up to the glowing standard of his debut – Confused.
Contrary to my previous post (is Louie Blue, a band or solo artist?), Louie Blue is indeed a solo artist. His sound is soaked in neo-soul goodness with analogue instrumentation. Reminiscent of Jamiroquai with an infectious feet-moving groove Louie steps out capturing the Scandinavian style and the look of today.
The sweet video reflects the lyrical subject of ‘Blue Jeans (genes) and white footwear’ in the glow of the Finnish sunshine. The song title is perhaps a play on his name too… Or am I reading too much into this? Regardless, the warmth of this soulful track means we can leave the thinking and simply embrace Louie Blue as another symbol of a bright soul-fused future.
