Shore native Skylar Demarino aka SkyDxddy just dropped a brilliant new cut, ‘Battlefield’. The song is gorgeously lyrical and enforces the feelings many women have regarding the recent Roe v. Wade decision. Battlefield uses a range of subtle synths, adding another layer to bass and beat combinations that don’t take away from the lyrics’ honesty and intelligence but instead build a steely, thematic texture. There is ferocious energy here, but it is SkyDxxdy’s lush, dextrous, even luxurious vocals that give the track its layered and nuanced authenticity.
The track already has over 21,000 streams.
The brilliance does not come as a surprise to those of us that grew up with Skylar. She cut her teeth right here in Cape Charles, performing on the Palace Theatre stage and at many local venues, festivals, and events. She was what this writer always called a triple threat: dancer, singer, and actor. By the age of 10, she had already written her first song and took to the stage performing, competing, and raising money for local charities.
While a wonderful actor, singing was always her passion, and now her career is breaking the mold.
SkyDxddy is managed by grammy nominated producer Jeff Blue.
Their first viral release “Triggered” (2019) was received well among music bloggers, and influencers. It was the follow-up feature “Puppet Master” (2020) that took SkyDxddys brand viral. In less than 2 weeks the single racked up hundreds of paint challenge videos which eventually earned them over 300k followers on the social media giant, TikTok.
However SkyDxddys next single “Madness” would take their sound global. Released in May of 2020, “Madness” climbed up in streams when it was discovered by the Nightcore community on Youtube. Raking in over 1 million views. It gained the attention of renowned international producer Epidemix, where he created the first ever “SkyDxddy” type beat which would soon become the foundation for their latest single “Monsters Ink“.
In the winter of 2021 SkyDxddy releases their new single “Hold Me” with the producer of Pop Hit “Overwhelmed” Marky Styles, co-produced by Grant Dawson.
SkyDxddys productions knows no boundaries delivering intense alternative rock to melodic future pop anthems. SkyDxddy is clearly one to watch out for with their unique vocals, powerful lyrics and cult like fanbase.
