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

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
