Australian newcomer Skarma is coming back to us this week with a spacious atmospheric dance single called ‘Saturate’ which has him teaming up with fellow Canberran artist Quails for her golden vocal sounds.
‘Saturate’ has elements that could be likened to a mix between Baynk, Two Lanes and SG Lewis, and if it is anything to go by, Skarma certainly is someone we should all be keeping a very close eye on.
As Skarma reveals below, he’d been wanting to work with Quails for some time, and to him this song seemed like the ideal fit. He was very happy when she also connected with the song and felt that her creativity pulled it all together just perfectly.
“Quails is an artist who I had been wanting to work with for a while, and this song seemed to be a natural pairing with her vocals. The way she interpreted the instrumental that I sent her bridges the gap between light airy happiness and darker driving club music, giving it a unique and powerful sound.
This song is something that I can see people dancing to but also connecting to it in a deeper & emotional way.” – Skarma
Quails also gives us her insight into her meaning behind the song’s lyrics, and how someone you once loved can so easily become a total stranger…
“It is speaking to a breakup of people who share their life together and their friends. The chorus specifically is talking about the moment where the two people are out at night, and are in the same place. They don’t speak to each other but know each other are there and that weird animosity. How someone you once loved becomes a stranger.”
‘Saturate’ is available everywhere now including Spotify & Apple Music.
