Originating from the East London ska-core scene, THE SKINTS continue to push boundaries with their original brand of “tropical punk” with new single “Restless”, featuring Grammy-nominated Jamaican reggae star, Protoje. Blending Channel 1-era rub-a-dub with a British “Ghost Town” influenced edge, “Restless” confronts the everyday lies and broken promises from our politicians and world leaders.
“The laughable nightmare of what’s happening in the offices of the leaders of the ‘free world’ definitely keeps us awake at night,” says guitarist and vocalist Josh Waters Rudge. “From Downing Street to the White House, this is us venting our 3am thoughts about the wrongdoings and injustices committed by people who are, on paper, there to make people’s lives better.”
Here’s the video for the band’s last single, ‘Learning To Swim’…
These singles are off of their upcoming new album Swimming Lessons, which releases on May 10th via Easy Star / Mr Bongo. You can pre-order Swimming Lessonshere.
