Blue Violet Releases New Song “Poster Girl”
- Anglo-Scottish alt-pop duo Blue Violet, consisting of Sam Gotley and Sarah Gotley, released their first single of 2022 called “Poster Girl” on January 21, 2022.
The song will appear on their upcoming debut album “Late Night Calls”, which is expected to be released in April 2022.
The duo recorded the song at Middle Farm Studios with producer Rob Ellis. The accompanying music video was directed by Jarred Figgins, starring Athina.
Sam Gotley said of the song, “'Poster Girl' is a song about fighting back. The character it centers around resists objectification, defends herself from evil and keeps whatever company she sees fit – in the chorus she finds herself the leader of a group of drunken sailors that accompany her on her voyage… As the writing process went on we felt that a dystopian, Orwellian setting was perfect for the female protagonist: weary traveller, fighter, lover & saviour all rolled into one.”
He added, “Walk on the Wild Side by Lou Reed definitely worked its way into the fabric of this one, but we also wanted to give it an anthemic feel. We layered a lot of guitars & synths and have two drum kits playing at the end, giving a feel that the world is kind of collapsing around you.”
