Hailing from Sydney but now residing in London, producer/songwriter Craig Beck, aka Skybaby Siren, has been an established artist and writer for years. After finally deciding to start investing in his own music, he began releasing tracks periodically as an outlet from his usual work producing music for others. A multi-instrumentalist he see’s the value in collaborating with singer-songwriters to enhance the music he composes and hopes that this somehow strikes a chord with music lovers.
Skybaby Siren’s latest release is ‘Day by Day’, featuring the vocal stylings of ELIA and showcasing what the band self-describes as their brand of Sonic Psychedelic Rock Pop. It’s a sleekly produced track, that shows off the act’s typically 80’s influenced style, with hints of the serene pop of modern dream rockers DIIV. ELIA’s cool vocals float through the song, ushering in the infectious harmonies of the track’s smooth chorus.
‘Day By Day’ is about being in a relationship where one person is more ahead with feelings than the other. It’s about wanting to stay in the relationship but getting scared and wanting to control the pace.
The previous release, ‘I Love Everything About You’ – was cowritten and was the first Skybaby Siren track to feature ELIA. ELIA is a singer/songwriter from Melbourne. A graduate of the Australian Institute of Music, ELIA’s music style is mellow electro containing influences of Contemporary Jazz and Popular music. Since her first release in 2013, Elia has been composing all genres focusing mainly on top line work. It was through this work she began collaborating with Skybaby Siren.
The band not only are releasing this brand new single, but an accompanying music video. The promo video explores the life of Neon, a young agoraphobic girl who lives “day by day” in a wardrobe taken care of by her very loving and understanding boyfriend Sam. Frustrated by the lack of human touch and the need to want to help Neon find her happy place Sam devises a very clever and cute solution to encourage Neon out of her little tiny house.
