Review: “Crossfire” - SKŸE

Sometimes, my favorite songs to listen to are the ones that make me stop and reflect. And I think SKŸE has written my new favorite! “Crossfire” is an achingly beautiful song that reminded me of the feeling of anxiety about the unknown and needing to feel wanted. I think SKŸE is a genuine lyricist. I found many of the lyrics he wrote to resonate with me and how I view myself in the eyes of others. I think one lyric in particular that I enjoyed was in the chorus: “But I spend all my life / Talkin’ myself out of it over and over again / Stunned myself before I tried / As if I could reach that high.” I think SKŸE does a great job of connecting his lyrics to his life experiences, they were all so beautifully written.

Right off the bat, I recognized that SKŸE has an incredibly unique voice, very similar to Mitch Grassi of Pentatonix. It’s very soft, and he can reach some notes that even I can’t! He has an incredible range, so I think a song like “Crossfire” is perfectly suited for a voice like his. SKŸE belts sometimes throughout the song, especially as he sings “spend all my life” in the chorus. However, I think the true beauty in his voice is exposed when he sings the softer notes. They tugged at my heartstrings, and I fell more and more in love with the song. So I think it’s easy to say SKŸE’s voice and his incredible lyrics made for one killer combo.

SKŸE is a singer, songwriter, and producer from Melbourne, Australia. He has been releasing music since 2018. His debut single, “Better”, went viral, amassing over 1.5 million streams on Spotify. Since then, he has gone on to release several emotional fan favorites, such as “Love Like That” and “Body”. SKŸE’s music is transformative and melodic, giving me chills when I listen to him sing each note. I gotta say, I’m now a big fan of his music, and y’all should be too! Go stream “Crossfire” now!
