Skating Polly – Hey Sweet

(click song title above to listen)

While still in middle school, Skating Polly recorded an album in their living room and called it Taking Over the World. Here we are just five years later and it seems they could do exactly that!

This week’s top tune is one of our fave’s from their new ‘Ugly Pop’ lp The Big Fit, check out the video HERE.

“This won’t hurt too badly” sings Kelli Mayo, “I’ll just take your skin”.

For fans of Hole, Nirvana, and Milk Teeth. Skating Polly bring “Power, passion, and songwriting excellence”Kerrang!

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!
