Alt-rock singer-songwriter Ife Mora captures the true spirit of her hometown in her new music video “Detroit Blues”. “Detroit Blues” is just the latest single from her sophomore album Fire Inside Me, which is described as a masterful blend of powerful vocals and skill for narrative songwriting. The songstress’s songs travel the country, painting portraits of life in New York, Detroit and other psychic landscapes of America.
The gritty video for “Detroit Blues” is perfectly in tune with the down and dirty nature of the blues song. It shows Ife sweaty in a mechanic shop, while images of abandoned houses and a broken metropolis are streamed across the screen. The video is a very real depiction of the hardships Detroit is facing. However, Ife wants us to get a feeling of hope from all of the beautiful people who are surviving and fighting for the rise of a grand new City.
