BILL JR. JR. – “BLUE”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE
On January 26th, Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Russell Gendron released Homebody, his third outing under the band moniker Bill Jr. Jr. And today, Bill Jr. Jr. is premiering the video for his latest single “Blue”.
Gendron wrote “Blue” at a time when he was faced with making an important life decision.
“Blue” is about how I imagined I’d feel if I didn’t move with my partner to Montreal,” says Gendron. “She had a school thing coming up over there and I had my life thing here and so I had to make a decision to stay, or to go with. Writing the song was a way for me to get closer to my decision: I realized that I’d be so “bluuuuuueee” if I stayed around here doing the same old stuff, so I took the plunge. Blue is a sort of a country song but made strange or “off”, which is why I like it so much. It’s a twanged out and lush version of a known and old timey idea.”
Much like the video for his previous single, “Dear Neighbour”, “Blue” is shot in 360 degrees creating a fun and interactive video experience, while showcasing Bill Jr. Jr.’s lo-fi 90s slacker vibe.
