Bambie Thug Drops Video For Ireland’s Eurovision Entry

Ireland’s Eurovision entry Bambie Thug has dropped the video for ‘Doomsday Blue’.

The Cork-born alt artist is hoping the song will see them crowned victor of the prestigious competition, which kicks off in early May.

And aiming to rouse some support for the track, the artist has today shared the music video for the track, which depicts them trying to conjure a boyfriend but instead creating a strange creature.

Shifting between a dark realm and a candy-coloured dream world, the video reflects the sonic light and shade of the track – if you haven’t already, have a listen below via the brand-new video.

Speaking about the video, directed by Kassandra Powell, and the process of it making, Bambie has said:

“Filming the music video for Doomsday Blue was mad! I’m so proud to have worked with an amazing team filled with so many queer and non-binary people. 

“Camp are a dream to work with, and while the turnaround was ridiculously fast, there was a lot of heart and passion poured into it and I’m super grateful. 

“Originally the story for the video was very dark, but since winning the Eurosong, there’s been so many people reaching out about how their children love the song, so I wanted to make sure the video was something enjoyable and accessible for people of all ages. 

“My sister and I eventually came up with this idea of making it a little more cutesy, spooky and comedic. There’s a lot of odes to pop culture moments in there from Mean Girls and Barbie to 

“The Creation of Adam (Michelangelo)…obviously all made a bit goth. I’m excited to share it with everyone and have it out in the world… now I can focus on bringing it to life in Malmö.”

Bambie Thug will perform in the first Eurovision semi-final on Tuesday May 07, from which they’ll aim to qualify for the grand final on Saturday, May 11.
