It’s easy to say that someone as young as 15 years old doesn’t have a mature understanding of heartbreak. But then again, Lewis Blissett is not like most 15-year-olds.
On Thursday (Sept. 12), Blissett dropped his new music video for “Killing Butterflies.” The trance-pop track sees the young singer taking a dark stance on the nature of lost love, hypothosizing that like wings, hearts are “meant to be torn apart.” He takes it a step further in his next lyric: “Faith, hope, some things are meant to be gone broke.”
In the new video, one of his first ever videos for an original song, Blissett takes viewers on a PC Music-inspired trip, with lo-fi apparitions of himself sporadically appearing throughout a bleeding multicolored landscape. By the end of the video, he’s multiplied into an army of himself, each singing about wanting to “stay up all night killing butterflies.”
“Killing Butterflies” is the singer’s second official single after May’s “Sick Thoughts.” Prior to his signing to Warner Records, Blissett grew a massive following for his stunning covers that he would post online, including covers of songs by Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Rihanna and more.
