Listen Now To Skott – Kodak & Codeine
Swedish singer, songwriter and producer Skott just releases her new magnificent breakup anthem in the form of “Kodak & Codeine,”
Swedish singer, songwriter and producer Skott returns with her own unique twist on a breakup anthem in the form of “Kodak & Codeine,” out today via Dollar Menu in partnership with Cosmos Music [LISTEN HERE]. Featuring Skott’s trademark earworm melodies, laced through sweeping cinematic production “Kodak & Codeine,” is a song about the struggle to get out of a destructive relationship and the magnetic nostalgic force that keeps bringing you back together.
Speaking about the song, Skott reveals, “You meet someone that seems to understand you in a way that no one else does, and together you create this bubble – it’s almost like you have this parallel galaxy where only the two of you exist. But then you realize its actually a one-man kingdom, and you’re not the one with the power.”
On the significance of Valentine’s Day release date, Skott shares “‘Kodak & Codeine’ is being released on Valentine’s Day, a day full of expectations and disappointments. According to statistics, February 14th is one of the most common days of the year for breakups. What should be equally important as celebrating and strengthening healthy love, is to break with the bad kind of love. It takes a lot of courage to acknowledge, accept and get out of a toxic relationship. There’s confusion, guilt, and chains of history to get past. Please choose loving yourself first and foremost this year’s Valentine’s Day, and every day.”
As the first offering of new music in 2020, “Kodak & Codeine” follows “Midas” – which Billboard hailed as “vibrant” and E! Online described as “altogether hypnotizing” – and the hauntingly infectious “Bloodhound,” before it, which earned praise from NYLON, who said “Skott perfectly weaves a cheery chorus into this moody track,” while PAPER Magazine hailed it as “gleefully strange,” and “addictive.” Known for creating one-of-a-kind, mesmerizing melodies, “Kodak & Codeine,” “Midas” and “Bloodhound” each deliver in that department, featuring Skott’s signature vocals over a rich, intricately layered soundscape. Watch the official videos for “Midas” and “Bloodhound,” both co-directed and produced by Skott & Paras IV.
