Guilty Pleasures: Dear Silas, “Skrr Skrr”

We all have guilty pleasures, those songs that have no business on our iPods or the tracks we only blast with the windows rolled all the way up in our rides. In this column we share our darkest musical secrets.

If you’ve bothered to peruse the Internet over the past couple of weeks – and obviously you have if you’re here – I’m sure you’ve stumbled across those Dexter memes.

Dexter as in Laboratory, not Dexter as in serial killer.

It’s typically a bunch of girls hanging off Dexter while he whispers something hilarious in her ear.

This is my favorite one.

I assumed the tune was from some Drake song I’d never heard before but nope. The artist in question is Dear Silas and the full song ain’t half bad. That is, if you don’t mind a grown man singing skrr skrrrrrrr.

Blowing up off the strength of memes is the new come-up. Check out the full version.
