Skylar Spence shares single from Debut lP

Skylar Spence formally known as Saint Pepsi has shared the new single "Can't You See"

Today, Skylar Spence is sharing the first taste of Prom King, the uptempo “Can’t You See.”

Ryan DeRobertis recently changed the name of his project from Saint Pepsi to Skylar Spence. As well, the change arrived with a musical shift toward faster tempos and more pristine production. Whereas Saint Pepsi had often used old boogie, and disco, samples, Skylar Spence has explored his own production techniques and vocals. With Prom King, DeRobertis has arranged his music for his new full-band live act, and an album full of catchy dance tunes.

Working with Carpark Records “gave me the confidence to ‘go big’ with the new material: to write pop songs with universal messages in the sonic wrapping paper that I’ve grown accustomed to,” DeRobertis says. “A few songs on Prom King are about specific events in my life-a party where I got too messed up, watching a friend’s life spiral out of control and trying to help-but I tried hard not to be too autobiographical because I want my music to unite, above all else. I’m much more interested in connecting with the listener than mystifying my personality.”

DeRobertis’ other albums have been more in the style of beat tapes, Prom King has varied stylistic references (new wave, UK garage, boogie) united through strong guitar melodies and various vocal samples. “I slowed some music down and called myself an artist.”
