Effie Sky
Effie Sky
Effie Sky’s heartbreakingly honest lyrics explore sexual identity, love, religion, attachment, freedom and entropy. Coming from a mixed race unorthodox family she grew up between worlds and began to write it down. Gifted at an early age her poems were printed in various publications including Toronto’s Young Voices. Inspired by the Beat Writers and Leonard Cohen, Effie Sky’s sound evolved into a blend of dark thoughtful lyrics with an electronic indie pop background. She captures a unique sound between Joni Mitchell, Lana Del Rey and Banks using heavy synths with melodic catchy choruses that do not subtract from the poetry and meaning of each song. Her songs have been featured on CBC radio 2 and her upcoming EP ‘Aquarius’ will be released in 2018.
