Rising act bukky sky drops his first track “in the water,” from upcoming EP HAPPYSEXYLOVEPOTION, a lush electro-tinged production with a bittersweet message. Led by soulful, vibrant guitars and hazy synths, sky’s gentle vocals weave a tense tale of knowing that someone you love will let you down.
With a catchy, lo-fi instrumentation, the track delves into a relationship which begins with a foreboding sense that it’s going to end badly, journeying to the painful breakup where his heart-wrenching lyrics "I'm smiling cos I know you're guna let me down,” unveil the acceptance of this unfortunate end to your love.
Inspired by every ordinary moment with your partner, where uncertainty creeps in, the track is a true reflection of many relationships in the world, wrapped up in a hypnotic sonic arrangement.
Rooted in relatability and equal amounts of intimacy, bukky sky who started 2022 off with a bang by dropping debut EP Brave in Love has carefully evolved his sound into a grounded pop-R&B fusion that feels soft yet upbeat all at once, upping anticipation on what’s more to come from the promising talent.
