March 8 , NYC-based indie/soul artist Michael Blume released a new music video for his single “Blunder” – premiered via NYLON.com
The video provides a connective visual to the dynamic track, reminding us all that we can overcome negativity and self- doubt to go from being our own harshest critic to our biggest ally. The song is available now on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon and Spotify and is from Michael’s forthcoming EP due out later this year.
“We all make mistakes by allowing the outside world’s ideas of who we should be to infiltrate our own psyches and concepts of self. We all sit in different places on the bus that is life struggling with our own demons,” explains Blume. “This video speaks to the ways in which this place of struggle connects us. I believe that empathy is a big part of community growth and I hope the video highlights how alike we all are even when we feel alone with our pain.”
Before Blume once again hits the festival circuit this summer – with performances scheduled for Emerge Impact + Music in Las Vegas, NV, and Bonnaroo Music & Arts festival in Manchester, TN, fans can catch him on the road with Lawrence in May.
