Listen: Skies - Too Young
The sky's the limit for these guys.
Adelaide more often than not gets characterised as the place where bands don't play and where no bands come from, but electronic acts like Skies and distant rock cousins Bad//Dreems (not actually related) are tearing apart these stereotypes. Skies, in particular, have just released their self-titled debut EP featuring tracks like Too Young. And while comparisons can only take you so far if you're a fan of the bearded god i.e. Chet Faker and Safia then I'm sure Skies will go down a treat. Especially Too Young with it's playful vocal harmonies and smooth guitar licks that bring to mind a shimmering overexposed photo full of washed out colours. Skies are also going to be kicking it at BigSound and I'd recommend catching them:
Where: The Winn Stage (in The Brightside Carpark) - Winn St, Fortitude Valley
When: 1-1:20pm Thursday September 10 (Horror My Friend are on at 12:30pm who I'd definitely recommend)
What else? Well there's going to a $500 bar tab so a free cheeky beer sounds alright with me.
