Wakefield four-piece Skinny Living have released their new single ‘Let Go’ before a new EP.
‘Let Go’ is the first track from their new EP which will be released in the summer. It comes hot on the heels of the quartet’s recent sold-out UK tour and showcases the group’s captivating blend of pop, soul and acoustic anthems, songs that manage to sound both epic and personal at the same time.
The quartet came together by chance when frontman Ryan Johnston, Will Booth (guitar), Danny Hepworth (guitar) and Rhys Anderton (drums) met at an open mic night and soon began collaborating.
Johnston says they write music that naturally taps into the everyday emotion of life, songs about “family, people, life, struggle”.
“‘Let Go’ is about embracing change for the benefit of yourself and everyone else involved, no matter how hard it is and no matter how much it hurts. How many times do we hold on to people, jobs and patterns in life for fear of change? It’s something we all go through,” says Johnston.
He adds: “There’s a lot of music that, when I felt like nobody understood who I was, or didn’t have anybody to lean on, the songs gave me what I needed and if that can happen even for one person from our music, that’s amazing.
