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! But SKIES electro driven alt-rock is already making quite a large mark on the UK music scene.
The band have picked up support across the board including BBC Introducing and Radio 1, with tracks also featured on Spotify's 'Rockd', 'Hot New Bands', 'Summer Indie' & 'Fierce Femme's' playlists.
Following a breakthrough support tour with Manchester's The Slow Readers Club, the band released their EP 'We Fear Change' off the back of an incredible 2017 which featured stand out songs "Dead" and "Afterwards", and arguably their biggest achievement to date: a sold out hometown show at Folkestone's 400 capacity Quarterhouse.
Early 2018 has seen SKIES' get off to a flying start with their cover of Enter Shikari's 'Live Outside'. SKIES' version of the song received acclaim from KERRANG! Radio and even from Enter Shikari themselves. Meanwhile a new single "Pills" is out now!
SKIES are Alie Cotter (vocals/guitar) & Jericho Tozer (drums/vocals/synths).
