Black and Blue single by Night Talks is a song about the pain of a breakup that shouldn’t have happened. Night Talks uses the motif of a bruise to describe the overall feeling of the emotional pain of relationships.
“Specifically, the track is about feeling like you are the one taking the brunt of the hurt and pain in the breakup, while you see your former partner going on and living their life as if nothing happened. However, you’d rather feel sad than feel nothing– at least the emotion reminds you of what you once had.”, says Soraya, the front-woman of Night Talks.
