hmv tips for 2014… SKATERS
Every day throughout January we're going to be introducing you to a new act who we think are going to everywhere in 2014. Today it’s the turn of New Yorkers SKATERS and their raw, rough and ready rock n'roll.
Who Are They?
SKATERS hail from New York and formed the early part of 2012. They gigged around the city for a while and put out their debut EP Schemers back in February of last year. Quickly gaining a metric tonne of attention due to their frenzied live shows, the band were soon signed to Warner Brothers and have completed their debut album Manhattan which is due for release on February 24.
Who Do They Sound Like?
As raw and full-on as you like and steeped in the best that rock n'roll has to offer. The Stooges, Nirvana, The Clash, MC5, The Strokes, Pixies, it's all in the mix here.
Why Should I Be Excited?
As if the above wasn't enough then you'll also be glad to know that they kill it live. Get excited.
Can I Hear Something?
You can indeed. Their previous single 'I Wanna Dance (But I Don't Know How)' is below for you.
