Skating Polly – Hail Mary

(click song title above to listen)

This week’s top tune was the first song the band along with Louise Post & Nina Gordon of Veruca Salt wrote for their brilliant new ep New Trick. NPR calls their horror-chic video ‘vaguely haunted, quite uncanny and good, creepy fun’. The band says the tune is “about being addicted to poisonous people. We wanted the one of the video to be somewhat serious, but not self-serious”.

It’s been said, and we whole-heartedly agree, that what the world needs now is another great rock and roll band.
Step sisters Kelli, Peyton, and brother Kurtis, are composers and they are performers, this is true. But perhaps most importantly, they are cultural reflections unto not only themselves, but to society. The members of the band have been pursuing their private destinies within the confines of the pop music jungle. As is so rarely the case, the whole of Skating Polly is much greater than the sum of its parts and the newly formed amalgam threatens to undermine the foundations of the rock power elite. Godspeed young Polly, godspeed.

Fresh off a triumphant UK tour supporting Kate Nash, the Polly return to the States supporting punk legends X’s 40th Anniversary Tour starting Sept 6th in Las Vegas including a slot at Chicago’s Riot Fest 2017 on Sept 15th!

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.

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.
