Broadside release poignant new single 'Bleu'

Ballads and down-tempo tracks are not something that we normally play on our show or cover, however for this one we are making an exception.

Alternative pop rock band Broadside have recently shared 'Bleu', the latest single from their album 'Hotel Bleu'

The track is a stunningly poignant release about front man Oliver Baxxter’s fiancé.

“’Bleu’ is a song I wrote about my fiancé,” shares Baxxter.A phone call changed our lives as the doctor on the other line said a prayer after he gave us the news that the tumor in her chest was breast cancer. We cried on the living room floor for two days after that until; eventually, we found the strength to call our family and friends. I couldn’t accept that someone who I’d lived and breathed with every day was about to endure one of the most demanding challenges of her life. ‘Bleu’ is a love letter to anyone who has ever experienced the sudden realization of such an unforgiving and cruel disease.

Baxxter has also chosen to share a number of research organizations and support groups for those who have been affected by breast cancer, in hopes that they can find the help and comfort they need:

Breast Cancer Research Foundation -
