"UNDOUBTABLE EUPHORIC ANTHEMS"

Folkestone, Kent, isn’t necessarily the first place that would come to mind as the hometown of one of the UK’s most exciting new acts.

Handpicking elements of rock, pop & emo in equal measure, SKIES first made their mark on the scene in late 2015. Produced by Oz Craggs (Mallory Knox/Neck Deep/Feed The Rhino), the release of their debut EP 'If You Feel Like It' saw the band pick up support across the board, from the likes of Punktastic, Already Heard & Clash, to Q, TMRW & Maximum Pop.

The turning point for the band arguably was ‘Drone’; a track released in 2016 that became an instant favourite at radio, with fans and bloggers alike. The single went on to garner significant BBC Radio 1 support from Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart, whilst becoming firm favourites with BBC Introducing in Kent.

The band released their follow up single 'Hold On' in July 2016 which heralded praise from blogs and BBC Introducing. The song featured on Made In Chelsea and the spotify 'Hot New Bands' playlist.

SKIES are Alie Cotter (vocals/guitar) & Jericho Tozer (drums/vocals/synths).
