Singer Skum Love comments:
“The Dark” was written “under duress while being held captive by the height of the pandemic in 2020. The song depicts dark imagery of four characters dealing with stress, anxiety and depression in their lives. A heartbroken girl, a stressed-out businessman, and a bullied youth contemplating revenge, while a battered housewife tries to drown her sorrows. Inside this darkness is a ray of light in the shape of a hand reaching out to pull them out of the turmoil and bad decisions.
This song is a very personal one. I knew it had to be more than just another song, it had to be a movement… I reached out to the You Rock Foundation, and with their incredible help, this song can reach to more people and hopefully reach others that are crying out for help. Music has always brought me out of a dark place and made me see the light.”
Alex Crescioni, who produced, mixed, and mastered the single shares:
“‘The Dark’ showcases a new sound for Skumlove that I feel has been waiting to emerge from the depths. The music and video complement each other beautifully encompassing vulnerability we all can relate to during times of mental and emotional unraveling.”
The group partnered with the You Rock Foundation in supporting the single. You Rock is dedicated to helping people in need of mental health assistance through music. Learn more about them via the link above.
