Interested in independent music, emerging artists and new album releases? DJ Marie, music director at Radio X, will keep you updated every week in The Current on what’s new in the world of music. You can catch her on Monday nights from 6 to 9 p.m. on 88.5FM, bringing you new music you’re sure to love.
Warning: “Prom King” will make you dance like that stereotypical looney-bin at a red light. This album is full of eleven happy-go-lucky tunes worth bopping your head to including a few instrumental songs that are remix-worthy. The lyrics are fun and catchy, and I assure you that you’ll have the choruses down by the first spin―that’s how phenomenal Skylar Spence is. Formerly known as Saint Pepsi, Skylar Spence (Ryan DeRobertis) has released multiple albums; however, “Prom King” is Skylar Spence’s first commercial release under this new name. Fun fact: the name is actually a song title from a Saint Pepsi album. Simply put, Skylar Spence is a cheery, electro-pop artist and definitely something that’ll just make anyone―even the grumpiest―dance a little. You can catch Skylar Spence at the Bardot in Miami on Nov. 20.
