Review: "Mad At You" - Skofee

Coming from her recently released EP, Joyland, Skofee showcases her unique alt-pop sound with the new single, “Mad At You.” The song is one of six to be featured on her sophomore EP, each song showcasing themes of love, loss, and the search for happiness in familiar places. In this track, Skofee explores the frustrations and feelings of anger that accompany a relationship destined to fail. “Mad At You” continues Skofee’s tradition of mixing contemporary sounds with mainstream pop. She expresses herself through a delicious mix of candid lyrics and emotional vocals, supported by an experimental synth soundscape. Her quirky sound is one of a kind and offers something for any indie or alt-pop fan to love.

"Mad At You" is a perfect combination of eccentric and distinctive sounds, making this composition so memorable and genius. In this song, Skofee sets herself apart from the alt-pop crowd as she intertwines lush synth harmonies with unforgettable melodies. Though the song explores negative feelings about a failing relationship, "Mad At You" contrasts those feelings musically. It is upbeat and features light, pleasant vocals that float above the synth-laden background. Each peculiar layer of the song comes together beautifully, and is an undeniable masterpiece that everyone should be playing on repeat.

Skofee is an LA-based pop artist, quickly making her mark on the pop music scene. She was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, and grew up listening to bluegrass and folk music. After attending college at the University of Southern California, Skofee developed her love of music into a more pop-based sound. In 2020, she released her debut EP, Polished, and received rave reviews from the likes of Ones To Watch, EARMILK, and LA Weekly. Her sound has been described by LA Weekly as "super-contemporary, combining indie and pop to create a gorgeous, lush and emotional alt-pop vibe that certainly recalls Alison Krauss as well as the likes of Lorde.”
