Track Of The Day :: SKIES - Too Young
Words: Linn Branson
Continuing our love of all things Oz over the last week, here we have some gorgeous synth pop from Adelaide's SKIES. A big emotive, electronic feel and wonderful falsetto harmonic vocals are to be had on this title track from their upcoming 'Too Young' EP out September 18 via Young Muscle.
The three-piece pop trio Dusty (Lee) Stephensen (vocals/guitar), Micah Cearns (keys), Michael Zabolocki (bass) - formed in 2014 when they recorded and released debut single 'Flames', which saw them exceeding 30,000 plays on Soundcloud.
Self-produced and using a mix of electronic and organic instrumentation to create their sound, SKIES layer striking synth melodies, harmonic vocals and mixed tempo beats, with the incorporation of live drums, percussion and analogue synths. Lovely stuff.
