Skyler Cocco is a Southern California-based singer-songwriter and producer from Queens, New York. Not long ago, she released a lovely visualizer for her new single, “Stranger.”

Skyler Cocco – “Stranger” visualizer

“It’s so sad that I wanna be a stranger to you now. Forget the good days, it’s the only way I know how. I’m better off thinking we were never in love. Better off thinking you were never the one. Better off thinking that undone, I could be someone to myself. It’s so sad that I wanna be a stranger to you now.” – lyrics

‘Stranger’ is an ‘80s-influenced anthem that bursts with ethereal vocals, catchy pop hooks, and crisp modern production. It’s a song about that familiar post-breakup situation and the accompanying mix of bittersweet, sad, and sometimes relieving feelings. Also, “Stranger” is an acknowledgment that in order to move on, you must distance yourself from the other person and become a stranger. Furthermore, “Stranger” is the first track from Skyler Cocco’s forthcoming EP, “Crossroads.” Also, the song marks her first release with boutique London-based agency, ALTER.

Skyler Cocco has uncovered the special kind of friction that a New Yorker finds in Los Angeles. Just as the two cities sit geographically apart, they also remain creatively at odds as well. Ultimately, each represents a way of life as distinctly different as day is to night, with the differences spilling into life through sound, style, culture, and art. You could say they speak their own language and, fortunately for us, Skyler happens to speak both.

Her previous single, “The Drive,” was selected as the winner of Splice’s ‘The Inbox’ competition hosted by MUNA’s Naomi McPherson. With a cosign from one of her musical influences and heroes, Skyler began focusing on her artistry.

Alongside the development of her own project, Skyler has also been writing, producing, and collaborating with a veritable who’s who of rising queer pop acts like Alaska Thunderf***, Mike Taveira, and Allie X. Also, she captured the attention of Mark Ronson and Ellie Goulding who praised her spur-of-the-moment guest verse on their “New Love” TikTok challenge which garnered 100K+ views.
