Steve Kroeger x Skye Holland – Through The Dark

By Kerry Doole

Steve Kroeger x Skye Holland – Through The Dark (Prodigy): This dance-pop duo from Vancouver partners the production talent of Steve Kroeger with the vocal skills of Skye Holland, and the potent combination has led to a series of hits on the Billboard dance charts.


Those hits include So Close, We Are United, Coastline, Waiting For the Break, On My Mind (over 500K Spotify streams), and a recent cover of MGMT smash Kids.

Look for that run of success to continue with this invigorating new single. Holland's sweet and breathy voice is neatly complemented by Kroeger's processed vocals as the two trade lines. The synth grooves are both insistent and melodic, resulting in a very dancefloor-friendly cut. Sad that dancing in nightclubs is currently not a thing!

Both in their mid-20s, Kroeger and Holland already have a substantial musical history.  At 10-years-old, Holland started her music career in a Japanese pop group called HappyNs’. At 12 years old, she moved from Japan to Canada, where, during high school, she met Kroeger, a producer, singer, and composer.

Once voted "Future Star" by Bell Media/iHeartRadio, Kroeger has had his music aired nationally on SiriusXM, iHeart Evolution, and Pride Radio and Channel Q in the States. The duo's music has also received placements on such popular TV series as Temptation Island, Young and the Restless, Two Broke Girls, Pawn Stars, and WWE Countdown.
