Skip Curtis – “Messed Up”
Skip Curtis may not yet be a household name but that looks set to change with the release of his new single “Messed Up”. Skip has been steadily building his reputation over the past 5 years as part of XY&O alongside writing and production work with numerous artists
The track released on Good Friday is an emotive slice of self-examination laced with strong hooks and an excellent production.
As Skip explains “The lyrics focus on an internal conflict, an admission of weakness and unworthiness that comes laced with hints of martyrdom. ‘I can’t find my appetite, I’m so pale and nothing looks right – I’m messed up, I missed the feeling.’ ‘It’s a kind of weird selfish love song’ says Skip, ‘about trying to go down in flames but apologising for it at the same time.”
“Messed Up” is available now on iTunes etc.
