‘Bright Blue Screens’ is the new single taken from the forthcoming debut album, ‘Breathe’ by Cork singer Sara Ryan. Showcasing evocative vocals, her sound creates a captivating soundscape, revealing a darker side simmering under the surface. Her social commentary style delves into the violent world of social media and mobile phone addiction in ‘Bright Blue Screens’.

Illusion of Blue Screens moving further
Superficial world, technological dream
Can’t you see it’s not real it’s all a Dream
Social media is a powerful tool in today’s society, yet detrimental to human connection, promoting unrealistic expectations and comparisons towards a perceived perfect online profile. Sara explains, “the single is going through the darkness, facing it, being with the darkness, seeing the light through the cracks and surrendering to hope and light.” With references to nature, a touchstone and reality that is tangible and within grasp, ”Bright Blue Screens’ contrasts what is real against the distorted perfection displayed within the world of blue screens.
‘Bright Blue Screens’ reflects the beautiful, the powerful and the unreachable; unveiling the artifice and leaving the darkness and loneliness lurking underneath…
