Previous singles of Edva revealed one of the human senses. Blanche, in turn, explores the smell. Its release is accompanied by a music video directed by Elizabeth Haust. The video brings to life a woman-beast, a woman-monster – “womanimal”. Feeling like an outcast and finding no place in the modern world, she runs on the lookout of her own kind, focusing only on the smell.
