French singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Silly Boy Blue, aka Ana Benabdelkarim, has just dropped her latest single 'The Riddle'.
The emo, bedroom-pop track reveals an upbeat take on Silly Boy Blue’s emotive musical signature. Together with a video shot on a never-ending escalator in Prague by Mehdi Sef, Ana lends her entrancing voice to the song's of hope and confusion in a relationship.
“'The Riddle' talks about someone I never could decode," Ana reveals. "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.”
