UNDOUBTABLE EUPHORIC ANTHEMS - TMRW
Folkestone, Kent, isn’t necessarily the first place that would come to mind as the hometown of one of the UK’s most exciting new acts.
Handpicking elements of rock, pop & emo in equal measure, SKIES
first made their mark on the scene in late 2015. Produced by Oz Craggs (Mallory Knox
/Feed The Rhino
), the release of their debut EP 'If You Feel Like It' saw the band pick up support across the board, from the likes of Punktastic, Already Heard & Clash, to Q, TMRW & Maximum Pop.
The turning point for the band arguably was ‘Drone’; a track released in 2016 that became an instant favourite at radio, with fans and bloggers alike. The single went on to garner significant BBC Radio 1 support from Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart, whilst becoming firm favourites with BBC Introducing in Kent.
The band brought 2016 to a close with their debut London headline show at a packed out Camden Assembly and kicked off 2017 with a sold out hometown show at Folkestone Quarterhouse on the opening night of their debut UK headline tour.
Their sophomore EP, 'We Fear Change' will be released on 03.11.17 in association with SOTN Records.
SKIES are Alie Cotter (vocals/guitar) & Jericho Tozer (drums/vocals/synths).
