SKIES

Off the back of their debut EP If You Feel Like It, SKIES went from strength to strength last year. With support from Radio 1 DJ’s Huw Stephens' and Phil Taggart's, online plaudits from Clash, Q, TMRW, Punktastic, and regular backing from Abbie McCarthy of BBC Intro Kent.

They took to the road with the likes of Clean Cut Kid, Coasts and Get Inuit , culminating in SKIES seeing out 2016 in perfect style with a jam-packed headline show at Camden Assembly.

Early singles by SKIESDrone, Leave Me and Hold On turned heads from all corners of the UK and beyond, with the band building an army of fans on the road in the process. And the band show no signs of slowing down as they gear up to release their second EP, due in 2017, with lead single Afterwards giving us a taste of what’s to come.

Of the track, Alie Cotter states It’s a song all about regret, something that I think we can all carry at some point in our lives.”

Afterwards is a soaring slice of electro pop that will go a long way to seeing SKIES follow hard on the heels of former Ralph's Life 'Ones To Watch' CHVRCHES and if there’s one thing you won’t regret, it’s heading down to a show near you to catch the band live!

SKIES tour the UK this Spring to coincide with the new single, supporting The Slow Readers Club plus a selection of headline dates and a massive home town show at 400-capacity Quarterhouse in Folkstone.
