South West London’s dexter shares the lush, summer anthem “Blue Skies”. The moniker of 18-year-old Charmaine, dexter combines R&b rhythms with pop additions to create a tune brimming with the longing for clear skies and hazy summer evenings. It’s a summer anthem imo.
“Blue Skies was written in one day with my producer Dom Valentino. It was the last day of February, and it was a really cold and grey day. Dom started playing a guitar loop over and over, and it sounded really Summery – so I started thinking about how maybe when it was April and May and the sun and flowers were out, I’d feel happier too, so that’s where the lyrics came from. Those are my friends with me in the video – when we shot it we were worried it would be grey, but it was so Sunny.”
