Electronic music duo Bled are set to drop their latest single, Deutsche Oper on 2nd April. The track,  with its driving rhythms dramatic synths and dark, gritty vocals, talks of frustration and acceptance. It’s an anthemic and exciting listen and we’re delighted to be given it for an exclusive preview.

Here, Blue & Red tell us more about this latest release…


“I wrote a version of the chorus ages ago following a breakup and really liked it but never found the right time or emotional space to develop it. It felt like I needed more distance from it to really get it right.

“In-between recording a lot of our EP in 2023 I managed to get some verses together and heard the main riff in my head. I was really inspired by the messy but catchy sound of Yves Tumor’s ‘Secrecy Is Incredibly Important To The Both of Them’ and it has been a huge influence on me musically.”


“In parallel with the darker sound of the music, I have been aiming to move the artistic direction to a similar place. I decided to let go of the cute bubblegum-pop, glittery-prom inspired look of the old merch and visuals to continue with a grittier approach.

“I’ve been taking a lot of inspiration from horror movies, poems and old medical documentaries and aim to make more work in this vein to accompany this new release.”
