SKYND’s music is based around real-life darkness, often tied to serial killers and murder. The latest dark chapter of humanity to be serialised by Netflix is the case of Elisa Lam, the Canadian tourist who wound up at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles on her trek across California, where she tragically met her untimely end. The case took the internet by storm in 2013 after the release of the infamous ‘elevator video’, and interest has piqued again following the premiere of The Vanishing At The Cecil Hotel earlier this month. One artist who has long been fascinated by the case, though, is SKYND, who found artistic inspiration in Elisa Lam’s story. Here, we chat to SKYND about what drew her to the case, and why she finds inspiration in tales of death and darkness.
