Skating Polly – Perfume For Now

(click song title above to listen)

Channelling their inner rock’n'roll to extreme, last year Kelli Mayo of Skating Polly did a ‘Dave Grohl’ after tearing her knee ligament on stage. Though that seems to just be the beginning, with their new album dropping, it won’t be long before you’re thrown into a beer splattered mosh pit. Sisters always have each other’s backs. – NME.

Those are prophetic words from NME as Mayo and Peyton Bighorse put the finishing touches on their new album The Big Fit coming March 25th via Chap Stereo (April 8th UK). The album is a scorcher and was produced by Kliph Scurlock (Flaming Lips) and mixed by Paul Kolderie (Radiohead, Dinosaur Jr.) & Jim Vollentine (Spoon, White Denim).

“I wrote ‘Perfume For Now‘ hoping to come up with an L7 anthem type chrous and noisy basitar solo,” explains Kelli Mayo to Upset Magazine. “It’s about trusting someone with all your heart and then realizing they’re despicable and not worthy of your admiration.”

We don’t know about Kelli’s heart, but happily her knee has fully heeled and the duo will be in fine form in a city near you. You can catch them March 23rst at the Treefort Music Fest in Boise, ID, Apr 23rst at the Norman Music Fest in Norman, OK and a summer tour with Deerhoof just for starters. Don’t miss their excellent new video for the tune directed by Nickolas Rossi (dir. of acclaimed Elliott Smith doc Heaven Adores You) HERE!

Skating Polly – Riot Fest 2015

Riot Chicago 1024x1024 Skating Polly   Riot Fest 2015Skating Polly is simply one of the most original and interesting punk bands going. Its instrumentation is pretty minimal, but the duo makes an exhilarating racket & has poignant and poetic social commentary in its snarl. The Oklahoma City-based band’s fans include Exene Cervenka, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Lennon, and the Flaming Lips. A punk band that covers Spacemen 3, Perfume Genius, and M.I.A. among others, is definitely pulling from far more interesting places than many of its would-be peers”. Westword, Denver.

Sunday September 13th, 11:30a – Radicals StageRiot Fest, Chicago.
