Always Brave In Love.
As humanity reflects in the bubbling void of its own company and whilst the age of covid accelerates universal inner and outer transformation, the purpose of music as an art form to merely entertain I believe is shifting to a complimentary purpose: That purpose being to usher in deep self reflection, deep self-acceptance and deep self-love in order to transform the parts of our psyche's we would rather keep in the shadows. We will bring the shadows out into the light, with kindness and with courage. I believe the magic of music has its part to play in the process. With the power to alchemise the mind, the heart and the soul. Hopefully this will support the transformation of humanity into a more integrated whole and happy bunch! I aim to play my part :-)
"Bukky Sky’s warm, serene vocals that leave you stunned. Effortlessly gliding between late-night lounge jazz, chilled-out indie rock, and more the piece defies easy categorization. By far the very beating heart comes from his clever lyricism that is delivered with a grace that feels timeless"
"written with a self-reflection, a sense of pure personal poetry"
"draw from Portishead’s trippy dark atmospherics as well as the Smiths at the peak of their 80s powers."
"His voice keeps things in a dream-like state, as if he was a singer in a David Lynch film"
"Bukky Sky teeters dangerously close to an emotional overflow as new track Amazing holds tight to a near-overwhelming saccharine nostalgia."
"With a slow-burning, romantic appeal reminiscent of Dan Bejar’s Destroyer, there’s a purposeful drive within his storytelling, both self-aware and remorseful, yet hopeful and considerate"
"Amazing is a refreshing take on the self-assured nature of modern day pop."
"Inspired by the ghosting phenomenon made prevalent by social media and dating apps, the song flawlessly incorporates a vintage aesthetic to speak on the contemporary nature of this problem which has been around since the dawn of time."
"As we move to a gospel-inspired spoken word section for the outro, I’m reminded of Kendrick Lamar on To Pimp A Butterfly"

"Elegant, classy, sexy, the ‘Amazing’ video is an old fashioned movie, that brings us back to the magnetic atmospheres of Portishead, with a spellbinding retro texture. ‘Amazing’ is a Martini left untouched in a solitary lounge bar, it’s a convoluted plot of menage à trois and social dynamics, visually and harmonically"
