French queer artist from Toulouse, Leny MÜH, blends seductive brooding Chanson Française and wistful enveloping Coldwave in the stirring video for the psychological track “Coup de Blues | The Blues”, taken from last year’s debut 10-track album “CAPHARNAÜM”, via independent label Hidden Bay Records.
“Coup de Blues” draws from a deep well of unsettled emotions to weave sad, glistening guitar strains through a beautifully evocative vocal brood of tragic heartfelt aching, whilst hypnotic drum beats, fluttering echoes, atmospheric lonesome synth swathes, and a dragging bleak bassline, coalesce into an immersive outpouring of agony, flowing hopeless into pain-filled tears of disappearing memories.
The dramatic DIY black and white video, starring Pierre Poitier and Christopher Chevanas, evokes second thoughts, lonely longings, and murky melancholy from dim-lit flashbacks of lost love and secret fantasy. A disenchanted Romance casts shadows of doubt over a dreamy barroom scenario where intimate eye contact, fragile fear, and helpless desire set the stage for a poetic, lyrical confession wept in the confusing afterthoughts of an impassioned one-night stand.
Leny MÜH‘s debut album “CAPHARNAÜM”, is available in Limited Edition 12″ Vinyl through the Hidden Bay Records Bandcamp.
