Stevie Wolf’s latest track is another peek into his soulful, electronic-tinged sound. Over bluesy melodies that give way to a booming hook, the singer tackles the complexities of loneliness and human connection, asking: “Could you ever know me at all?”
More directly, “Yves Klein Blue” looks at the feeling of being so connected to another person that you adopt a tunnel vision-like feeling. “I see you like Yves Klein Blue/ When everything else is black and white,” Wolf croons, a reference to a brilliant and unmistakable shade of blue developed by the eponymous painter.
As Wolf told Billboard last month, the song is an attempt to describe that feeling when “you see somebody and they’re the most vibrant human ever, and I feel like I know [them]” just by looking at them. “Yves Klein Blue” is the perfect entry into Wolf’s deeply insightful music that, despite the raw emotion running through it, somehow leaves you feeling more charged up than before you started listening.
