Sky_A Releases New Song “Walker”
London-based singer-songwriter Sky_A released a brand new song called “Walker” on January 26, 2024.
The song is the second single, following the release of the debut song “Spider Silk” last August.
Also, the song will appear on his upcoming debut album, which is expected to be released later this year.
The track was written and produced by Sky Ainsbury, with production by Aneek Thapar.
Sky_A expands on his palette of electronic, acoustic and progressive rock music with this track, to bring a darker edge to his intimate yet cinematic sound.
Sky_A said of the song, “It's an angry piece of music. Like, anti-imperial levels of anger. It's about having been lied to, having participated in awful things on a huge scale, and becoming aware, resolving to undo the damage that has been done.”
- He continued, “It's a bit like a war march, sonically. Built around the sound of my thumb on an unearthed guitar lead - a sound most musicians will recognise, barely musical - it has this feeling for me of molten rock, this tectonic movement, as this person is accepting their pain as a gift, of purposeful anger. I like it being called Walker, I hear the rhythm as a kind of limping gait, wounded but resolute. There's a lot more to it than that - every song on the album is a scene, and the sounds are characters - which won't make much sense out of context, but it comes at a decisive point, it's the squaring up to the challenge ahead, it's about seeing the horror and brutality in the world and not looking away.”
