Bio

“Brutally honest, brutally tender, wild at the heart and basking in splendour, breaking me ‘cos it feels like forever, since I last saw you back in November.”

‘When Your Light Is Low’ is the debut release from SKYUKA; the ethereal, electrifying stage persona of Perth born Vanessa Raspa.
Heralded as a captivating performer, SKYUKA is a solo electronic artist and producer who’s music is a fusion of electronic pop, hip-hop, trap and dirty synth sounds.
Launching at Mojos Fremantle on the 13th November, the single (produced by Kruger James) came to SKYUKA in a dream, on the birthday of a friend a few months after he passed away. It is a song that celebrates the person he was and serves as a reminder of the support we can show each other in times of darkness.

With a little lick of jazz on the vocals, this opens up into a luxuriously dark banger.
