SOAK – “Blud” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

“You’ve got a problem, and I can’t fix it” goes the opening line of SOAK’s new single, delivered in the young singer’s native Irish accent, and without hiding one bit of the melancholy that comes with accepting a fact like that. “Blud” is a love song, sure, but not an easy one. SOAK is Bridie Monds-Watson, a 17-year-old songwriter and the first signee to Goodbye Records, the new label run by the members of CHVRCHES, one of the biggest success stories of last year. Today we have the video for “Blud,” shot on landscapes and inside buildings as understated and beautiful as the song. Watch it below and if you’re in Europe catch her on tour with CHVRCHES.
