Skye Wallace - "Coal In Your Window"

The latest single from Toronto, Canada's Skye Wallace may be pure power pop perfection. "Coal In Your Window" imagines a world where The Donnas were more influenced by Cheap Trick than the Ramones, but with plenty of late 90's indie rock guitars. It has plenty of punk attitude and edge, but is more fun and playful than aggressive. Wallace says about the song: "I wrote this song in a building in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland that used to be an old cottage hospital (Bonne Bay Cottage Hospital / Julia Ann Walsh Heritage Center). It was inspired by a story I heard about one of the young folks that used to work in the hospital and the boy that would throw coal at her window at night to beckon her down to their meeting place in the boiler room. 'Coal In Your Window' may be about a specific story, but it’s a truly universal concept of jittery, passionate love and doing whatever it takes to access that fire that another person ignites in you. I wanted to evoke an excited, dangerous, lustful energy that gets the heart pumping."

You can watch the video for "Coal In Your Window" below. Skye Wallace's self-titled debut album will be out June 7. For more on Skye Wallace, check out her website.
