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.

Skating Polly – Nothing More Than A Body

(click song title above to listen)

“Armed with just a homemade bassitar and a pair of backwards facing drum sticks, Skating Polly’s music is as barbed and cutting as the braces on their teeth. Raised on riot grrrl and root beer in the red-state Bible Belt, Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse are far from your typical middle American teenagers.” – Bryn Lovitt – Noisey/Vice.

This week’s top tune is the ripping new single from Skating Polly from their forthcoming album, Nothing More Than A Body. It was produced by former Flaming Lips member, Kliph Scurlock and mixed by Kerry Brown, Brian Liesegang & Kevin Dippold, at the SIX01 artist collective (Greg Dulli, Smashing Pumpkins, Mark Lanegan). The track was written as an existential response to meeting long-time idol Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel and features Peyton on lead vocals. You can read more of that story and check out the video HERE.

The band is currently wrapping up a victorious (their first) tour of the UK in support of Babes In Toyland. Reactions to the shows in Bristol, London & Southampton has been nuts!! You can still catch them tonight at Gorilla in Manchester and tomorrow night at Oran Mor, Glasgow.
