SKILAA Share Single 'I Never Knew' + Touring This Winter

Tāmaki Makaurau’s neo-soul sensations SKILAA share their latest single ‘I Never Knew’ ahead of a four date tour, taking them nationwide this winter. A collaboration between Chelsea Prastiti and Michael Howell, the celebratory track’s funk-infused guitar work is as playful as its lyrics. Prastiti sings “I never knew love could be like this,” uplifted by melismatic harmonies. A song "about being in love with someone who really feels like your best friend, and makes you and your life better rather than harder," the catchy tune gets hips and footloose fronds moving as the drums breaks things back down — like time slowing down the ecstatic realm of love. You can expect to get lost in such glorious euphony at SKILAA’s upcoming tour, starting in the Wine Cellar alongside Ripship and Eliza Beth

"It meant a lot to me to finally be able to write about the experience of romantic love from the perspective of happiness rather than sadness, so it felt like a milestone in my life to have the opportunity to write this kind of song." — Chelsea Prastiti
