Review: "Paint Me Blue" - Bella Kaye
"Paint Me Blue", a recent release from artist Bella Kaye, is a song full of intense electronic beats and lyrics full of anger and pain. Kaye sings about how she feels her ex-partner, and the breakup, has painted her blue and she expresses how frustrated this fact makes her. She explains how her past relationship broke her down and turned her cold, despite how hard she tried to stop this feat. The bridge of her song states, “You left me no space on my canvas / Losing myself I can't stand it,” a heartbreaking statement that is a common feeling after a breakup. She feels that she has changed completely from the loving person she used to be, and her ex is to blame.
With her sultry voice and dark soundscape, it is obvious that Kaye is going for an emotional and heartbroken storyline in this song. Despite this intent, "Paint Me Blue" is fast paced and loud, rather than taking the typical ballad approach to a breakup song. This allows the audience to feel the anger with Kaye, as you are transported into her mindset and reaction to the breakup. The electronic background and intense guitar riffing shows the chaos and pain she went through, and proves the fact that music is a way for songwriters, especially Kaye to express their pain and heal from the events that cause it.
