“Halo” Music Video Release by SIKORA

Remember SIKORA? The Los Angeles duo launched their debut EP “Ecliptic” last month, and this morning, they surprised us all by dropping their beautifully visualized video for one of the songs off their EP, “Halo”.

The video stars Matthew Sikora and Liz Forde in a glamorous take of what could easily be mistaken for a set from the hit show “Breaking Bad”. While Sikora belts out emotionally charged phrases from behind his flashing electric guitar, Forde sparkles in front of the camera with her refreshing vocals and equally stunning appearance on screen.

The music video takes us on a journey of the artists looking for their “halos”, from desert to ocean. The entire video is expertly conceptualized and woven together by director Dima Otvertchenko. From the broader story line to the minute details, this video was a great success in bringing the song “Halo” to life.

“Ecliptic” EP Release by SIKORA

This morning I bought the recently released EP by the male-female duo SIKORA, and I have had their catchy hooks happily stuck in my head all day. SIKORA launched their debut EP “Ecliptic” last week, hitting the digital world with four original tracks loaded with bluesy guitar riffs and sultry vocal harmonies.

Self-described as a “pop/alt rock outfit”, the Los Angeles based duo of Matthew Sikora (vocals, guitar, bass) and Liz Forde (vocals, percussion, keyboard) have been collaborating since 2011, and have recently released their newest music under the guidance of LA producer Dean Dichoso.

Their single “Halo”, the second track on the EP, was released as a teaser in March, and boasts the duo’s love for the California rock sound. Liz Forde’s vocals shine with breathtaking precision as she takes on the harmonies and verses of this track.

Another song from the EP, “Comic Book Hero”, brings intense energy through Matthew Sikora’s enthusiastic guitar riffs, layered vocals, and sing-a-long lyrics. The song has been chosen to appear in the USC Thesis Film “O-Star”, directed by Dima Otvertchenko. 

Both “West Coast” and the final track of the EP, “Souldier Boy (Soldier Boy)”, bring a delightful, playful blues sound to the table, which invites the audience to join in with the talented duo until the end. On the whole, I find “Ecliptic” to be a wonderfully relatable, and also diverse album in the four tracks included on the release. From rock, to blues, to pop, SIKORA brings a little something for everyone.
