YDE is a 17-year-old Australia-born/half-Filipino singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and actress based in Los Angeles, California. Not too long ago, she released a captivating music video for her “BlindLife” single, via Facet Records/Warner Records.
YDE – “BlindLife” music video
“It’s like I train myself to stay easy, real greasy, believe me, I’m fine. I say that every time. It’s like I train myself to stay happy and laughing, relaxing, I’m good. I say that when I shouldn’t. Everything’s fine with me, honestly besides the world ending.” – lyrics
Harkening back to the classic music videos of the 1980s, YDE goes on a nonsensical adventure through a quirky, surrealist dreamscape, turning a blind eye to the chaos and turbulence of the world around her. Directed by Lucas Chemotti with creative direction from Darian Darling, the video is intentionally unrealistic and non-linear, featuring a playful blend of digital vs. analog video and mixed media collage techniques.
‘BlindLife’ was inspired by the chaos and turbulence of 2020. The likable tune contains a relatable narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the song possesses groovy instrumentation wonderfully flavored with an alternative-pop aroma. Furthermore, the majestic sirens echoing in the background underscores the song’s central apocalyptic theme.
“Everything’s fine with me, honestly besides the world ending.”
‘BlindLife’ provides an acute commentary on the present world we live in. Also, the song finds YDE calling out those who turn a blind eye to global issues such as racial injustice and climate change. Furthermore, “BlindLife” follows hot on the heels of YDE’s striking debut single, entitled, “Stopped Buying Diamonds.” The song is a fierce and sarcastic apology that cemented her place as Gen Z’s modern Rockstar.
YDE breaks every mold. The artist-to-watch rips apart convention with a razor-sharp perspective, fearless honesty, and earth-quaking vocals. Also, her path may have twisted and turned, but it ended up in just the right place. Initially, her performance instinct translated to the screen. As an actress, YDE has starred in pivotal roles on NETFLIX and Nickelodeon series. Also, she has received a nomination at the Kids’ Choice Awards for “Favorite Female TV Star.” Furthermore, her success has enabled her to attract a social audience of over three million fans and counting.
