Still from Saint Mars – Ocean Blues (feat. Tryzdin) video

Saint Mars team up with Tryzdin in “Ocean Blues,” a heartfelt track that taps into bullying. The video, directed by Romain Bedouet and Julia Bois, is a portrait of the effects of bullying. The single, which was originally released back in 2016, is a reworked version with a more synthwave flavor that channels a darker tone. Enjoy below:

On the music video, Saint Mars’ Marc Darcange shared:

“’Ocean Blues’ is the first song I wrote about bullying and it was a turning point for me… To be honest, I never decided to write about bullying. The melody, idea of the song, the story behind it came to me naturally, spontaneously: the story of a young boy bullied because of his overweight, called “Piggy the Whale” by his classmates and ending up turning into a real whale… I think the video develops this strong image further: the young boy gets more and more stigmata through the bullying, to the point he becomes what other people say he is; if they constantly call you an idiot, you will become that idiot. In psychology, this is called the Pygmalion effect.”
