"smooth with concealed edges, it's ("matador") a striking reminder that love is painted by many colours, and seeing them all is better than not seeing them at all." - earmilk
toronto, on - may 30, 2019 - today, singer-songwriter laurent bourque shares the catchy first single, "matador", from his forthcoming sophomore album, blue hour. the toronto rooted, ottawa born artist teamed up with east coast producer dan ledwell, along with co-writers dennis ellsworth and bobby morales to pen a chic piano-driven pop song about blind love. earlier this week the accompanying video premiered via earmilk. watch and share here.
“matador is a love song about a tortuous lover. about a hemingwayesque true love that is nothing but excitement, hype, passion and deceit.
the matador swirls around in his stoic, flashy garb leading his follower around in circles, who blindly sweeps in a zig zag pattern, not aware of where he is going or why he is going there.
even if you’re aware of this happening, nothing can stop you from seeing it until its inevitable end.
love is, and sometimes makes you, blind.“ - laurent bourque
