“Blindfold” is an exceptionally honest track.
The song – and the video – are presented rather bare; a voice to listen to, a face to see. There aren’t many distractions from Newcastle-based artist Martha Hill’s gripping voice. Subtle, but strong, the song is packed with emotion and attitude. All of this only enhanced by Hill seeming to sing directly at you in the video.
The song is a slow build, as is the video, the two working hand-in-hand. As the music crescendos, the video begins glitching out. Colors are added as Hill is beautifully painted in pastel colors, still singing directly at the listener.
