For Laurent Clerc, otherwise known as Little People, music is all about the process – every sound, every note and every subtle tone is used with a technical idea in mind. Perhaps as an artist he's the most attentive to detail, ensuring everything is a piece to the puzzle that is a holistic listening experience. Featuring Tif Lamson, "Skies Turn Blue" is his second single after a long hiatus, a cinematic and easygoing track that encapsulates a whimsical nostalgia.
Beautifully simple yet complex, "Skies Turn Blue" retains Clerc's signature melodic beats amidst the organic piano chords and subtle bells. Almost dream-like, the entirety of the song exudes an interesting mish-mash of genres – most notably the disco-like strings that are the highlight of the track. With Lamson's croons intermittently cascading over the instrumentals, "Skies Turn Blue" is but a myriad of feelings and lush soundscapes – all-around uplifting and peaceful.
