Are you a natural people-pleaser? Do you ever find yourself giving your all to those around you, and realizing you have nothing left to give yourself?
If you said yes to either question, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Women, especially, are taught from a young age to be palatable. We often strip ourselves of the very traits that we’re comprised of to become caretakers putting out everyone else’s fires. Well, rising musician Skofee might have something to say about that.
The platinum-haired alt-pop star is no stranger to emotionally draining herself for the sake of friends, family and lovers. She’s so accustomed to it, actually, that she wrote a song about it. Wind Up Hero is the singer’s catharsis for this same phenomenon. Her strong musical roots and spunky spirit come alive within the track’s punchy pop beat. Skofee’s vocals elevate Wind Up Hero to a higher plane. She’s created an anthem for us people-pleasers to remind us we can lead with dignity and independence whilst making space for those around us to cycle through their emotions. Skofee combines emotional intelligence with funky, whimsical production to produce a wonderfully upbeat f-you anthem that will strike a chord with anyone who listens. Plus, there’s an incredibly fun music video to boot.
