"…a gleaming, slo-mo electronic pop dream…”
– The Line of Best Fit
Danish artist Skylar Fri continues to redefine pop with the release of her latest single, Gold Rush, out 9th February 2018 via AntiFragile Music.
Gold Rush is about the internal war between your actual self and your ideal self. Skylar Fri elaborates, “its about a moment of temptation, of thinking money is the answer to happiness and about facing up to traits in ourselves that we don’t always know or want to know that we have”. Skylar Fri’s ethereal voice floats over synth-laced melodies, creating something akin to the likes of FKA Twigs and Broods' celestial musicality. She is an artist driven by a powerful sense of identity and Gold Rush is yet another example of her unique ability to create hypnotic, sophisticated alt-pop.
Now living in London, Skylar Fri has used the time to hone her sound. Her previous single Better has already received praise from the likes of Noisey, Clash, Wonderland, The Line of Best Fit and Hilly Dilly to name but a few. With Gold Rush, Skylar Fri will captivate listeners further with her own blend of cinematic, Scandinavian chill-pop.
Gold Rush is out on 9th February 2018 via AntiFragile Music.
