Skating Polly – Blue Obvious

(click song title above to listen)

This week we flash back to the first Skating Polly song we fell in love with, “Blue Obvious” from 2013′s Lost Wonderfuls. Teenage multi-instrumentalists step sisters Peyton Bighorse & Kelli Mayo “each possess wonderfully unique yet complimentary voices and viewpoints. Spector-scope reverb (courtesy of producer, Exene Cervenka!) gives these defiantly lo-fi mediations on bad friends, boys, parents, afterlife, and activism an appropriately grand feel” – Tom Tom Magazine

Could not have said it better! As you probably know by now, they have a knack of pulling off amazing videos for their songs and this one is no exception. You can check it out HERE!

Skating Polly have been busy putting the finishing touches on a new album between tours with the likes of Babes in Toyland & L7. Don’t miss out on their upcoming Riot Fest appearances in Denver & Chicago featuring Pixies, Snoop Dog, Modest Mouse, Coheed And Cambria, Alkaline Trio, & many many more.
