One of the artists we are most excited about this year, Filmore, keeps absolutely crushing it with each and every new release. The talented newcomer has taken the country world by storm, winning over fan after fan with his undeniable charm, stage presence, and catchy, but fresh singles. Most recently, the singer-songwriter premiered arguably his most vulnerable cut to date entitled “Blue Skies.”
Although we fell in love with Filmore’s talent because of his high-energy set at the Lauren Alaina concert last month, getting to hear the singer’s softer side is equally as enticing. “Blue Skies” is the singer’s take on a break-up song. Keeping with his notable swagger, he sings about not wanting to leave the house because of the heartbreak. Moreover, he admits that dealing with a break-up in the sunshine, “blue skies” is even more difficult.
“So I just stay in, avoid my friends / Wait around ’til the clouds roll in / This heartbreak’s worse when it’s nice outside / Damn I hate summertime / I’m so tired of blue skies / Nothing to hide that goodbye / It hurts a little more in the sunshine”
Despite the melancholy nature of the lyrics, Filmore somehow manages to deliver an absolute anthem for heartbreak and break-ups. The song is relatable, but better yet, the rising artist makes you want to sing the lyrics at the top of your lungs, while your hiding in your bed, waiting for the sunshine to disappear. Kudos to Filmore for continuing to show fans exactly who he is and keeping his artistry consistent, endearing, and authentic.
