Skyler Cocco Shares New Song “The Drive”
- New York-based singer-songwriter Skyler Cocco has shared a new song “The Drive” following previous single “Run Away”.
Initially, she crafted the song as a demo built on a guitar sample from electro-pop trio MUNA's Splice “World Saving Sample Pack” during quarantine. She received an email about a competition Splice were holding with the MUNA sample pack and decided to submit the barebones demo she'd put together. A few days later, MUNA hosted a Twitch stream to give feedback on their favorite submissions and “The Drive” was chosen as a standout track. Then, she decided it was going to be her next single.
“I wrote 'The Drive' to reflect on a time where I've said things I didn't mean to my partner or lashed out in a way that made them feel insecure in the relationship," Skyler Cocco said of the song. "It's the cooldown period after a fight, where you take some space to really let your own words resonate and see where you were wrong in a situation, and realize what you're putting at stake by not changing those behaviors. I really wanted to write a love song that felt vulnerable and showed my true intentions, that I can hold myself accountable and change for someone who I wouldn't want to live without.”
