Introducing: Blake – Skeptical

You’re probably familiar with the following situation: you meet someone, you start to like them, and you think things are going well. But then it fizzles out. You’re not sure what happened, but you feel disappointed and foolish. Skeptical by rising artist Blake accurately portrays this experience. She sings about how she’s been down this road before.

It can be tough to deal with the ambiguity of a relationship that’s going nowhere. But the thing is, false starts are a part of life. We can’t control the way things turn out, but we can control how we react to it. Don’t let yourself be affected by negative thoughts. In the end, everything will be fine. Take the steps you believe are right for you.

Skeptical starts very soulful and drops into a more funky upbeat groove in the chorus. It creates an interesting effect, as it keeps the listener engaged and wondering what will happen next.
