It’s already been nearly five months since Silk Sonic (the duo between Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) released their first single together, “Leave The Door Open.” At long last, Silk Sonic is now back with their second single, and “Skate” is just as smooth and rich. Each of these songs will appear on their upcoming album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, expected out this fall or winter.
“Skate” kicks off with some percussion and gliding strings, making for a beautiful and sweet soundscape. Anderson .Paak takes on the first verse, describing how wonderful he thinks this woman is. Bruno Mars then takes over for the chorus, encouraging the woman to approach him. Bruno also gets the second verse, but they both trade off on the bridge. The song sounds just as retro as “Leave The Door Open” did, and it highlights excellent vocals and an uplifting atmosphere.
Matching the old-school style, the video looks like it was filmed in the 1970s. Bruno and Anderson are again behind their instruments the entire time, joined by their band. Meanwhile, a posse of woman roller skate in front of them, having a good time and enjoying the tune. It’s a simple but effective video, just like the clip for “Leave The Door Open.”
