Video Blue is a project by Dundalk native Jim O’Donoghue Martin. Embracing ambient electronica and guitar driven alt-pop; the music is a highly personal rolling document of his life. All of the music is recorded in his east London bedroom.
2015 has seen the release of 2 EP’s; More Pop Troubles (released on cassette via US indie Wiener Records) and September’s Simmer. Summer 2016 saw the release of the ‘Disco Nap’ single, which was released on 7” vinyl and available in stores such as London’s Rough Trade and Dublin’s Tower Records.
The latest single from VIDEO BLUE, ‘Bombshell‘, sees O’Donoghue Martin sweep back to some of his roots, whilst also adding something entirely new, with his electronic bag of tricks put aside, he has written a joyous and seriously addictive slice of indie guitar-pop.
