On The Table Read, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, Skofee shares her new single, Quicksand, about letting go of someone you’ve been desperately holding onto.
Quicksand is the new single from Skofee, co-written and produced by Grant Boutin, featuring striking synths, 90’s pop-fused melodies, and shimmery pristine vocals for an alluring anthem all about letting go of someone.
“It is my ode to hitting a breaking point. It’s about the sinking realization that you have to let go of someone that you’ve been desperately trying to hold onto,” explained Skofee.
Born and raised in Wichita Kansas, Skofee grew up in a home filled with bluegrass and folk music. After attending the University of Southern California, she took her love for the music she grew up with and adapted it into a more pop-based sound. Her left of centre style maintains melodies that satisfy the inner earworm, and feature candid yet affecting lyrics and lush harmonies over decadent tracks.
Now bassed in Los Angele, she released her debut Polished EP in 2020, and received incredible reviews from the likes of Ones To Watch, EARMILK, and even the LA Weekly, who said, “Skofee’s sound is super-contemporary, combining indie and pop to create a gorgeous, lush and emotional alt-pop vibe that certainly recalls Alison Krauss as well as the likes of Lorde.”
In 2021, she released her Post Pop Remix of her single, Spiderman. Post Pop is the moniker of producer Stefan Skarbek, who has also worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen and Jamiroquai. This uptempo reworking saw several months of airplay on local KROQ-FM, arguably the most influential Alternative radio station in the country.
In July 2022, Skofee released a duet remake of the Grammy nominated Dutch singer/songwriter/producer, Cimo Fränkel’s hit single,“Where Do You Hide Your Love, which saw support from tastemaker radio outlet KCRW and was placed in A-list rotation on Amazing Radio USA.
Skofee’s sophomore EP, Joyland, touches on love, loss and the search for happiness in familiar places. Its release will be preceded by several singles from the collection including the tropical house-tinged end-of-summer banger Wind Up Hero, and Quicksand, a relatable 90’s pop fused anthem about letting go.
