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.”
