The Skins

NYC Artist on the rise! The Skins play Mercury on 06.27

Brooklyn's soul band The Skins is a tantalizing blend of '90s R&B and contemporary hip-hop. On their 2016 EP, Still Sleep, each song is tightly hook-oriented and provides sense of urgency to the entire five-track release. The Skins' sound has evolved rapidly from a more rock-based aesthetic, as evidenced on their 2014 track, "Pump Up The Speed." The Skins will be playing Mercury Lounge on June 27th, and then head to the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle on September 1st. Check out the video for breakout single "Bury Me" below, it got more than 100k plays on Youtube! - Ethan Ames

Soulful Rockers The Skins Play Union Pool 3.25

It’s hard to come by a great, purely rock band. In a scene that is drowning in pop-anything-and-everything The Skins step in to offer a reprieve. The Brooklyn based band, consisting of the Mckeithan siblings and two friends, infuse rock with a pinch of funk and a lot of soul. Through Bayli Mckeithan’s vocals and the alternating guitar warbles of Spencer and Chell the band creates a textured sound with warmth and depth that infiltrates unapologetically the space it surfaces at. Don't miss them performing at Union Pool on March 25! - Adriana S Ballester


Weekly Feature: The Skins

The Skins are a Brooklyn based heavy rock and soul outfit consisting of three siblings and two best friends.  Lead vocalist Bayli, bassist Kaya and drummer Reef Mckeithan are joined by two nimble-fingered guitarists, Daisy Spencer and Russell Chell.  They play a thunderously rhythmic rock emphasizing powerful riffs underneath dynamic, clearly defined vocals.  Having already self-released an EP that has garnered them both critical acclaim and positive street buzz from savvy music listeners, the band is hard at work on a full-length album.  Since their initial inception in 2012, the band has toured extensively, impressing audiences at Afro Punk, SWXW and CMJ festivals.
