Skylar love. single review of "racing against your heart"
Pennsylvania's Skylar Love's 'racing against your heart' comes from her 6 track ep 'hey,call me' released in October 2020.
There's a familiar contemporary sound to Skylar. She sights people like Any Winehouse as influence and it's written all over her sound but I was leaning more to Katie Melua with a more jaded heart.
This track is recorded well, I feel like it's almost live and I have no doubt it would sound exactly the same in a gig setting.
There's a restrained regret that litters this song with the half truths of a story she's telling.
She writes with an insight beyond her young experience (she's 15! Yeah! 15!).
Skylar's words have a delicate power that shine next to the standard band set up.
I like the idea of 'racing against your heart', like she's chasing not only against the person leaving but with ever mile gained from the situation, the more the hearts mind is made up.
She's this good at 15 then there's definitely more to come.
