Known for her disarmingly personal songwriting, catchy folk melodies and heavenly vocals, Irene Skylakaki returns once more to take us on a trip down ‘Sutherland Avenue’. The track follows on from a string of releases made earlier this year including ‘Dreamy’, ‘Mary Smiles’ and ‘Souvenir’, which is also the title of her upcoming studio album.
To tease the forthcoming project, Irene offers fans a taste of what’s to come in ‘Sutherland Avenue’.
“I would prefer it if anyone who listens to ‘Sutherland Avenue’ connects with it through their own experiences. The lyrics to the song are quite self-explanatory and raw and after various tries, I insisted on keeping them as they are unsophisticated and honest.”
Created alongside long time friends & producers Iain Gordon Smith and Andres Mesa, ‘Sutherland Avenue’ embraces a wholly unique sound that’s clean and simplistic whilst still being distinct and memorable. The ambience the instrumentation creates is vast and open; accented only by soft, distant drums & gentle synths that accentuate Irene’s angelic vocals perfectly. The lyrics are somewhat obscure but yet they remain incredibly relatable to most, through her skillful songwriting, Irene manages to take us all on a trip down ‘Sutherland Avenue’.
