Kent duo SKIES ﬁrst made their mark on the scene with the release of their debut EP ‘If You Feel Like It’ back in 2015. Shoot three years forward and they are now preparing to share EP number three ‘X’ in June.
New track ‘Pills’ is a song about being caught between a rock and a hard place. Sometimes it’s not that easy to walk away from a situation or a relationship. Although life’s pill can taste quite bitter, this catchy blend of pop-rock from Alie Cotter and Jericho Tozer is accompanied by an incredible music video which sees the band surrounded by thousands and thousands of yellow pills.
Armed with just a guitar and a drum kit, the duo have poured all of their emotions into this song making it hauntingly charming with gorgeous hooks and lots of charisma – carrying their feelings from previous EP ‘We Fear Change‘.
Having already supported the likes of Clean Cut Kid, Coasts, The Slow Readers Club and The Hoosiers, the band are keen to get back on the road. ‘Pills’ is the ﬁrst track to be released from forthcoming EP ‘X’, and it certainly marks the trail for what is to come.
Early 2018 saw SKIES’ get off to a ﬂying start with their cover of Enter Shikari’s ‘Live Outside‘. SKIES’ version of the song received acclaim from KERRANG! Radio and even from Enter Shikari themselves.
