[Premiere] SKYLR Deals
with the Devil

“Lock me up in your love, I don’t want to feel anymore,” SKYLR cries in “Devil,” which premieres here today. Based in Chicago, and born in Iowa, Schuyler Miller is midwest through and through. Her voices says as much, but the full bodied bass and skittering hi-hats sound something of a darkly lit alley in London town. I suppose we all have our overcast days.

“Devil” serves as SKYLR’s debut single, one that began as a two-page poem atop a simple chord progression on piano. She took artistic reference from Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City, a novel in which Schuyler found unexpected parallels to her own relationships.

“The song is about a girl who feels inescapably connected to a man that feels nothing for her in return,” she explains. “A mad love story.” The protagonist understands that love for him spells her own death. Still, she’s unwilling to cede. “But it’s more than just a twisted tale of love,” insists Schuyler. “It’s about the never-ending battle within all of us, between good and evil.
