Daily electricity to load your batteries

Artist: iskwē (pronounced iss-kway)
Who: Experimental, adventurous and much lauded Canadian singer/songwriter
who’s always exploring her own way of writing stout-hearted and unconventional,
yet captivating pop songs fitting her arresting vox. She’s as inventive, inspired and
imaginative as the great, surreal fairytale influenced sonic elf Björk
New single: SURE TO COME
iskwē: “I wrote this song as a conversation with myself, recognizing the anxiety I had been feeling about how it seemed as though regardless of how one might try, there will always be those who would prefer to see you fail rather than succeed.
But I didn’t want to sit in that state of worry, that constant fear of not being good enough.
I wanted to remind myself of the real reason I walk my walk: Do your best, hold your intentions in your heart, and trust that that’s what matters most, especially to the ones you love. The rest is sure to come.”
TUTV: Sure To Come emphasizes in the first place (again), the grandeur of iskwē‘s sublime voice, bringing the grand vocality of Florence Welch to mind. It lifts this new exquisite piece to a most enticing level. The song has an eastern vibe here and there, circling around sparkling percussion, and comes to a high every time the chorus comes on.
A crystal clear score.
And the accompanying video is a visual, animated spectacle.
