There’s no ignoring Skinner’s new single

The Irish music scene has been flourishing of late, with many of our homegrown, DIY bands even making it on the international stage.

Almost every week now we hear of another act coming through that “you just have to hear!” Some stand out more than others.

And that’s where Skinner find themselves. Having only released one single before today – “Headroom” – they’ve no less managed to find themselves playing the likes of The Workman’s Club and supporting other Irish bands such as MUNKY.

With new single “Slouch”, they’re going to have to get used to the late nights. This new release reminds me of proper alt/noise rock that often doesn’t seem to know where it’s going itself. It’s loud but not deafening, perfectly put together but not pampered, and 100% ready for the airwaves.

I can’t recommend “Slouch”, and Skinner, enough!

Hear Skinner’s new single “Slouch” on Spotify right here.

30 (eek), Irish. I write the blog reclessreviews! Music is my passion, so I try to spread the word of all the music that passes my ears, be it good or bad (mostly good!). I also write short stories and poetry and post them on iwritethesethings.
