Silly Boy Blue laments through brand new pop ballad ‘The Riddle’
Silly Boy Blue presents a brand new single “The Riddle”. Silly Boy Blue (real name, Ana Benabdelkarim) is a multitalented pop singer from Nantes, France. Signed to Columbia France, Silly Boy Blue creates a world split beautifully split between glam goth, emo and bedroom pop.
This new offering The Riddle reveals an upbeat take on Silly Boy Blue’s emotive musical signature she has become known for. Together with a video shot on a never-ending escalator, Ana is truly in her feelings as she conveys her song of hope and confusion in a relationship.
“The Riddle talks about someone I never could decode. I wrote this song to remember to always keep focusing on hope, that there is always a place where we feel like we belong. Hence the chorus’ mantra “Somewhere, you could be fine somewhere, you have to find somewhere, he’s not the one”. To finally find your own bedroom, where you feel safe”
