Los Angeles based rising alt-pop artist Skofee has released her vulnerable new single, “Wind Up Hero“. The track arrives alongside a vintage video, which combines nostalgic influences from the 70s and 90s and follow Skofee as she indulges in a wild desert escape and a road trip gone wrong. Watch it now below.
Speaking on “Wind Up Her” Skofee said that it “was born out of a note in my phone. I’d misheard something a friend said and, thinking they’d said ‘Wind Up Hero’. The resulting song is sung through the character of the ‘Wind Up Hero’, who will never let you down regardless of how much pain she’s in. It addresses my tendency to emotionally drain myself in an effort to make space for someone else’s feelings, which ends up serving neither party. Showing up for someone when you’re not in a good place feels a bit like summoning a superpower, so I felt the metaphor was fitting.”
