Maddison Skies releases their new song, From Different Worlds – Out Now!
It’s the third song released from the trio, who were brought together through the pandemic. Gracie May, Thea and Sophie, are set to bring a little bit of sauce and cheekiness to our airplays. Maddison Skies are the only British Girl Group to be formed since Little Mix hit won X-factor in 2011, yet unlike Simon Cowell’s millionaire band PR and Launch, Maddison Skies had come from a more humble start, but they are once again proving that a world pandemic isn’t going to hold them back from future dreams.
Throughout the pandemic, the three teenagers have formed such a solid friendship, and yet they have still only met in person just 3-times in the last year. Through the continuous lockdown, the girls have managed all communication and rehearsals through zoom, text and facetimed.
Maddison Skies, reflecting on the year:
“When we actually tell people, or even say it out loud to ourselves, it doesn’t seem real. Yes we have only met three times in person, and one of them was a fleet surprise meet in the park for Gracie May’s Birthday. Other than that, we’ve only met at the studios in Wellingborough in November 2020 and then again last week. On both visits we recorded three tracks and this time round we also managed to get some ‘pop-star’ poses for our new single from different worlds. This song was actually written as a theme tune for a drama that was the original platform for Maddison Skies. Because of lockdown the project was flipped on its head and we as Maddison Skies the girl group were launched. The odd thing is, and it seems quite surreal, that although our new track was written before lockdown, before the pandemic and before we had even met, it actually has so much relevance to the year we have just come through.
From different worlds, how did we get here?’ – they are the opening lines, and when we all sit down and actually try and assess the past year, we don’t think any of us could give you a ‘believable’ answer. We don’t live near each other, Gracie May is in Hertfordshire, Thea is from Coventry and Sophie is all the way down south in Margate. So we couldn’t even say, ‘hey shall we meet up for a walk’. But, against the odds we have become the best of friends and that really shows in our music. We released our first song in December, To The Moon And Back, then Fireworks in February, and our new track From Different Worlds is out now. We have a very unique sound, and it’s really hard to say, oh they sound like this group, or that artist. Our writer, ‘who we have again never met in person’, as he lives in Newcastle, is a rapper – Kema Kay. Mix this with a ‘rock artist from Russia’ – MikeZ, our composer, three semi-posh British teenagers, people would say its impossible, but this is what makes us Maddison Skies.
From Different Worlds speaks to our personalities directly, cheeky, saucy, spicy – that’s us in a nutshell and we are all definitely ‘on fire but as cool as ice!’
So what’s next for Maddison Skies?
“Looking to the year ahead, we want to just keep making great music. Now it should be so much easier as we can actually start to meet up a lot more. After releasing From Different Worlds, we have laid another 3-tracks and are keen to get some ‘proper videos recorded’ not just ‘lockdown’ versions. It would be great to get a small tour this year, but definitely just work towards our debut album release around September. We are also looking forward to actually getting the drama plans back on their feet, that would be really cool.
We’d like our music and our achievements so far, to send a message out to young people of our age groups, and younger, that life is worth every step you take. We have all found it really hard through the lockdown, getting together as Maddison Skies really helped us all. It showed us that there is a future that still holds dreams just waiting for us after the lockdown walls have fallen. Throughout our collective young ages, we have all seen bullying throughout our years from school and social media platforms. Together we have become stronger people, and we all feel that ‘to talk’ and just to have someone there who reassures you it’ll all be fine, is strength in abundance.”
