Skating Polly – Can’t Tell Me Nothing

(click song title above to listen)

The mighty Skating Polly have more creativity and energy than one could even shake a stick at. Yes, we try to shake sticks sometimes but can’t. Since the first moment we saw these two step-sisters Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse hit the stage at the Bootleg in L.A. back in 2013, they have never failed to surprise and inspire.

This week’s tune is no exception, an unforgettable cover they dropped quietly on their SoundCloud page in 2014 of Kanye West‘s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”. It was the first single from Graduation, West’s third album which ran away with 2007 and is coming up on a tenth anniversary mark this coming May.

On January 20 and 21 you can catch Mayo’s acting debut in the world premiere of the pilot When the Street Lights Go On at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival! Directed by multi-award winner Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture, Nimrod Nation, Crossfire Hurricane, Cobain: Montage of Heck), Kelli will play Berlice Beaman, a 15-year-old bohemian bookworm in a coming-of-age thriller about a sleepy, suburban Illinois town that is rocked by the brutal murder of a high school girl and her teacher in the summer of 1983.

When the Street Lights Go On. Directed by Brett Morgen, written by Eddie O’Keefe & Chris Hutton, and starring Max Burkholder, Odessa Young, Adam Long, Ben Winchell, Nicola Peltz, Drew Roy, Cory Hardict, Luke Kirby, Graham Beckel and Kelli Mayo.

Skating Polly – Pretective Boy (The Hey Mr. Version)

(click song title above to listen)

Purveyors of blistering alt-punk they describe as “ugly pop”, this week’s top tune from Tacoma-based step sisters Skating Polly is the most unapologetically catchy little jam yet. “Pretective Boy” comes from their brand new 4th lp, The Big Fit which dropped this week!

“It was just an experiment to see if I could write a good song using my loop pedal and it turned into one of my favorite songs we’ve ever recorded” – Kelli Mayo

Today we feature a damn sweet remix by Dan Molad of Lucius, hear the original version and see the excellent official video (directed & edited by Dave Smith) HERE.

You can see Skating Polly live in concert tonight in Minneapolis – 7th St. Entry, 3/31 Chicago – 4/1 Schubas Tavern, 4/1 Lydia House – Louisville, KY, 4/2 Mahall’s – Lakewood, OH, 4/9 Seattle – The Vera Project, 4/23 – Norman, OK – Norman Music Festival.

Also, look for Kelli to make her Dramatic Television Series debut as regular cast member, Berlice Beaman in the upcoming Hulu/Paramount Television coming-of-age thriller, When the Street Lights Go On! Read more about it HERE. CONGRATS KELLI!

Get yourself to the Skating Polly store to order The Big Fit on vinyl, tees, 45s, cds and more.
