NAUGHTY, co-written by Bluer with MUKI and Phebe Starr and produced by Sam Sakr, is a joyously deviant coalescence of in-your-face sonic surges, futuristic soundscapes and percussive slaps that make you want to do something inexplicably naughty. The deliciously concocted dancefloor-ready arrangement stomps its way through taboo subject matter such as infidelity and self-sabotage and positions Bluer as an artist who makes universal pop.
Sam made his solo debut in May 2018 with ‘Shift’ co-written by pop dynamo, Maribelle and produced by Tigerilla. Subsequent releases ‘Body High’ (co-written by Maddy Rowe) and ‘Bite My Tongue’ (Produced by New-Haven) have seen Bluer assert his place, blending UK dance sounds with maximalist Nordic inspired synth.
Bluer has an innate understanding of how pop operates. “My music lives in a specific world - it’s a fantasy world”, Bluer explains. “I love the idea of a ‘POP STAR’ I mean you always strive to be relatable and honest but that pop star persona and art creation from people like Lady Gaga and Boy George — is something that has always inspired me.”
