The Mid-Week Pickup for October 5, 2022
“A Different Shade of Blue” by Skeleton Trees
“Through a driving bass line, glistening guitars, atmospheric synths, and 3 part harmonies, “A Different Shade of Blue” comes together like puzzle pieces sliding into place. Self-produced, written, with all instrumentation played by myself. This track is about a life change bringing a new sense of lightness, and a new perspective. Inspired by the layered guitars of bands like The Strokes, but with a softened vibe akin to a band like Local Natives, this song is ready to find a place on summery, uplifting, indie playlists.” — Skeleton Trees
