Said The Sky collaborated with Grammy-nominated electronic musician ILLENIUM and platinum-selling Chelsea Cutler on the new single and video “Walk Me Home.”
DENVER, CO, USA, March 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ DENVER, CO, USA, March 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ DENVER, CO, USA — Said The Sky is synonymous with soulful, passionate, and extremely danceable electronic pop, according to millions of streaming listeners. Trevor Christensen’s musical project has been igniting dance floors in Denver for nearly a decade. Wide-Eyed, Said The Sky’s debut full-length from 2018, was future bass at its most approachable and melodically enticing. Christensen, on the other hand, has never been classified by a single style or genre. Indie rock, emo, soul, new wave, leftfield experimental music, classical piano pieces, and anything else he’s ever encountered and liked are all incorporated into his compositions. And on Sentiment, his enthralling new album — set to be one of the year’s most important — he emphasizes his versatility and reluctance to be labeled.
The anthemic tune “Walk Me Home,” which closes Sentiment, encapsulates Christensen’s style. The melody is as appealing as any that has ever graced a Said The Sky song, and the verses are as warm and inviting as those found on the album’s brightest, most enticing tracks. The drums kick in halfway through “Walk Me Home,” and the song’s rock origins become unmistakable.
Said Two more boundary-pushing musicians have assisted The Sky on the track. Chelsea Cutler, a Connecticut pop singer, offers lead vocals with the same unique blend of empathy and cinematic intensity that defines all of her work. Cutler, who went platinum with her Jeremy Zucker collaboration “You Were Good To Me” and charted in the Top 40 with her 2020 debut album How To Be Human, appears on a tune co-produced by Grammy-nominated electronic musician ILLENIUM. Said The Sky and ILLENIUM have previously collaborated on a track called “Rush Over Me,” which was pure exhilarating EDM in 2016.”Walk Me Home” is a very different style of song, but it fits in nicely on Sentiment, a collection that also contains contributions from The Maine, We The Kings, State Champs, and Motion City Soundtrack, among others.
The video for “Walk Me Home” violates expectations as well. Director (and frequent Said The Sky collaborator) Lillie Wojcik depicts the initial flickers of a passionate engagement in short, powerful, memorable strokes in this gorgeously filmed clip. However, there is one flaw in Wojcik’s narrative: the entire clip takes place in backwards. “Walk Me Home” begins with an image of a young woman in the glow of an encounter and then follows her activities backward in time. The camera finds her under a blanket in the middle of the night with a young man she’s clearly just beginning to know; it’s a sweet scene, but he’s been in a fight, and we have no idea why.The cause for the blood on his face is revealed only at the end of the video, and it’s motivating and shocking, just like the song.
