Inspired by James Blake – RetroGrade

One of my hobbies is to take songs that I like and create videos with my interpretations on them, so when I first heard Retrograde by James Blake, I knew that i will do something with this song, so I did

Jame Blake moves me with his voice, there’s something about the way he sings that kicks me in the stomach, making me emotional therefore when I heard Retrograde it immediately became one of my favorite songs (and most played for long time). So when I was thinking of a song to record a video for, it was obvious for me that I would want to record it for retrograde and bring my interpretation for it.
