iskwē Debuts Heartfelt Single “Part Two”

Written by Aiden Faire

Continuing her recent string of dynamic electronic pop single releases, iskwē | ᐃᐢᑫᐧᐤ (short for waseskwan iskwew, meaning “blue sky woman”) is sharing “Part Two,” its title meant to reflect “the second act in the story of a wonderful love affair that came to a crashing halt.”

“This is a song about a broken heart, my broken heart, after a rocky relationship finally came crashing down,” explains iskwē. “We should have known, and we probably did, that things would end as passionately as they began. We ran the other to the ground while simultaneously pulling each other back to our feet, but the landing got slipperier and slipperier with each recovery, until enough was enough.”

iskwē collaborated with 7x Grammy nominated producer Damian Taylor (Björk, Arcade Fire, The Killers, Bomba Estereo) and Ali “Willa” Milner on “Part Two,” assisting iskwē in finding the sentiment that she wanted to release. The song’s club imbued tension breaks to allow its chorus melodies to tumble forth: “Well enough is enough, our game has passed overtime. Enough is enough, we’re falling down from the high.”

I fell in love with music when I first picked up a guitar at age 8. When I played, my friends and family would smile and spill with joy over the music I played, even though it was never Grammy quality. While my music career never made it past high school, my love for music never waivered. I loved the feeling of bringing a smile to someone's face through music and wanted to keep that passion going. So, I took it upon myself to continue to support and promote artists by writing about their music. This way, I can support my personal passion for music and bring entertain and joy to others through music.  Outside my love for music, I do enjoy a good hike and being in the outdoors. My favorite place that I've hiked is in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. I love to travel too. I've been to Costa Rica, Vancouver, BC, and England, but the best place by far is Germany on Oktoberfest. I liken that experience to being in New Orleans on Mardi Gras. I like a good book now and then, but I'm more of a streaming fiend. I live for crime docuseries on Netflix, veterinary shows on National Geographic, and re-watching Scrubs on Hulu.
