Seeing producers collaborate is always thrilling to me – in the best way. I find it even more fascinating for producers who have done so before. On the one hand, you have two distinct styles – yet, when the two artists come together, they tend to push each other towards creating a totally new sound altogether – a departure from their norm.
That is definitely the case when it comes to Said the Sky and ILLENIUM.Said the Sky is a Denver-based musician who has been cranking out beautiful, awe-inspiring for years. ILLENIUM has been on a roll over the course of several years. He just released his fourth studio album, “Fallen Embers“. He’s also headlining Bonnaroo and tons of other festivals across North America. Both artists are on fire right now.
The two producers aren’t strangers to working together, as seen by their previous collaboration with Cristina Soto, “Painted White“. But listening to both tracks gives listeners a profound sense of time passed. With their last collab being close to two years ago, both artists have evolved immensely and their new song “Walk Me Home” is proof.
“Walk Me Home” is an emotional ballad where longing can be felt as Chelsea Cutler beautifully begs “Dont’ leave me alone”. It would seem these artists are channeling angst and pent-up sadness from missed connections over the past few years. It is a welcomed departure from their usual releases.
The song crescendos at the perfect time with strong bass and heavy percussion that elevate the feels to the next level. It also provides what felt like an ode to the styles we, as listeners, are more accustomed to hearing from the two artists.
