BLUAI are back with brand new single In Over My Head. Just a year after their first EP Junkyard, the band announces its anticipated debut album, due in the spring of 2024 on independent label Unday Records. Their music floats between smooth indie pop, indie folk and edgy 90s guitars, drenched in the hopeful melancholy of broken hearts, road trips, break-ups and casual crushes.
In Over My Head describes the feeling of losing yourself in your own thoughts. The endless worrying in bed for fear of what the next day will bring.
With a new live line-up, one year of extensive touring under their belts, and guidance from producer Willem Ardui (blackwave.), the trio continues its journey after scoring a hat trick in 2022. In that year they won Humo's Rock Rally, Sound Track and De Studio Brussel's Nieuwe Lichting, the three prime music competitions in Belgium. BLUAI have been on a roll ever since, became Spotify EQUAL ambassadors, and are now ready to reveal radiant new music.
BLUAI started off as Catherine Smet's intimate bedroom project (vocals, guitar) but quickly grew into a full-fledged band. Despite their different backgrounds and styles, there was an instant click, on and off stage, while still challenging each other to experiment.
