NON STOP CULTURE EP
The Skinner Brothers’ recent EP ‘Iconic’ certainly lived up to its name, winning these rising stars a whole host of new fans and press coverage as well as radio attention upon its release. Indeed the title track was premiered by Steve Lamacq on his BBC6 Music Show and further airplay was achieved at the likes of Radio X, BBC Radio London, RTÉ and Islington Radio. The band also enjoyed substantial streaming and download figures featuring on Amazon Music playlists Best New Bands and Fresh Indie. Furthermore, Robert Carlyle who is most known for his role in Trainspotting all so tweeted his support for lads on his own account where he is an avid supporter of new music.
The Skinner Brothers are once again bulldozing their way forwards as they release their brand new EP ‘Culture Non-Stop’. The EP is being launched alongside its lead single and title track.
Front man of the band Zac Skinner, has commented of the new release;
“This EP is no filler – chorus, chorus, chorus, chorus. Gritty, angry but still poppy”
Indeed, the title track ‘Culture Non-Stop’ wastes no time in getting down to the nitty gritty, highlighting the lads potent talent as the next great guitar band this country will witness. It’s a genre defying raw indie rock n roll anthem for which this band are becoming so well loved and known, mixed with a dash of soul and a handful of disco thrown in for good measure.. it’s going to be a huge hit for sure!
Next up is ‘Told You So’ which is an uplifting, spirit boosting track with heavy guitar emphasis and a spine chilling break line that’s sure to have crowds in a tantric euphoric state, when played live.
‘Jericho Star’, sees the tone being taken down a notch or two with a relaxed and somewhat rare sun-kissed expression of love from frontman Zac. it’s a beautiful melody and although not something you’d usually associate with The Skinner Bros., it’s certainly still got all the hallmarks of their unique sound.
The EP closes with the raw, gritty and somewhat psychedelic vibes of ‘Mountain High’.
The ‘Culture Non-Stop’ EP was amazingly produced by the ever talented Zac at his home studio in Brentford, , and was subsequently mixed by the Grammy-nominated James Krausse.
The Skinner Brothers recently signed deals with Blaggers Records and management company Magus Entertainment (The Streets, Dexys, Duran Duran), which is sure to propel them further into the stratosphere of global stardom which is so clearly now theirs for the taking.
