Back in April, Brooklyn trio Lemonade offered up a free download of its wistful, 808-driven cut, "Perfect Blue," a song that landed on the dreamier side of the group's synth-washed pop stylings. Now, the outfit has returned with another one-off single to share, a more uptempo effort lined with tropical percussion, a host of '80s-indebted synth tones, and finished with a careful amount of melancholy. Furthermore, "Skyballer" comes co-produced by Night Slugs mainstay L-Vis 1990, whose honed production touches seem to bolster the track's rythmic structures and dancefloor-minded mentality. But really, who exactly is responsible for what sounds here is largely irrelevant, because—as the tune so graciously proves—Lemonade and L-Vis 1990 make for a winning combination.
