If you’re in need of a mood booster, dexter’s refreshing melodies are here to save you from your misery. The 18-year-old South West Londoner has only been releasing music for a year, but she deserves so much more exposure than she’s currently getting. Ranging from bedroom pop to modern R&B, dexter’s darling discography will bring out the best in you — especially her playful new single, “Blue Skies.”
Imagine you’re stuck inside during a neverending rainstorm, but you know dexter’s “Blue Skies” is up next on the rotation. Suddenly, your worst woes have disappeared and you find yourself exploring the city with your closest friends in the beaming Sun. Between the lighthearted guitars and hip hop-inspired beats, “Blue Skies” leaves us in a delightful musical trance, and it’ll do the same to you.
On “Blue Skies,” dexter reflected,
“‘Blue Skies’ was written in one day with my producer Dom Valentino. It was the last day of February, and it was a really cold and gray day. Dom started playing a guitar loop over and over, and it sounded really summery – so I started thinking about how maybe when it was April and May and the Sun and flowers were out, I’d feel happier too, so that’s where the lyrics came from. Those are my friends with me in the video – when we shot it we were worried it would be gray, but it was so sunny.”
