Northern Irish indie-rocker Susie Blue has revealed the details of her eagerly-awaited debut album Didn’t Mean To Care, which arrives on streaming and download platforms on 12th February. The collection of new songs is driven by shoegaze guitar sounds, synth-pop melodies and Susie’s distinctive, yearning vocals. You can hear the lead single and title track a week ahead of release, and check out a cinematic new video for the song from today.
“This album is a collection of songs I’ve been writing and playing with the band for a couple of years, and is the story of my teenage years after coming out,” explains the young singer-songwriter. “The title refers to the many times I “didn’t mean to care” about people or things but I couldn’t help myself. A lot of the songs are about my relationships with past girlfriends, some good and some bad – but I hope people will bring their own interpretations and feelings to them too. If a song I wrote relates to someone, then that means everything for me”.
Backed by her able band of talented musicians and friends, Susie Blue has been storming the live circuit for a couple of years now with performances at Glastonbury, Electric Picnic and Other Voices festivals. Press and radio have also been quick to spot her talents, with acclaim from Hot Press and Dork Magazine and airplay with BBC Radio Ulster for her previous singles.
