We're the pioneers of POSTPOP; postpunk-style subversion of modern pop, so EVERYTHING we do is independent. 100% DIY. Our gigs are backed by colourful psychedelic skull-themed animations.
In 2 years together so far we have already been played by BBC Introducing and Radio X (John Kennedy). And appeared at gigs like Ronnie Scott's in Soho, Stockwell Festival, Peckham Festival, Well Street Against Racism street carnival and Plaza Latina, a huge outdoor celebration of London's Latin American community.
Our 1st video 'Trouble' was broadcast on Channel 4 Sunday Brunch with no music industry support. Our celebrity fans include street poet and podcaster Scroobius Pip and the rugby winger Josh Bassett.
We also host a regular postpop show on Boogaloo Radio, where other presenters include Suede, The Subways and Magic Numbers. And create official postpop remixes of other artists like Jazz Mino, Youth Club, Femme and Kid Cupid. In 2018 we will release our first ever 4 track EP.
Singles like 'Don't Cover It Up' typify the Zkeletonz postpop sound. The song is a a fizzy, fruity little burst of happiness which will stick in your head for ages. Expect twinkling tinkling ivories and ear-worm melodies.
It premiered at the Birmingham Mail website with supporting print articles in the Tamworth, Walsall, Sutton Coldfield and Lichfield local newspapers. And received praise from the What’s On Notts gig guide who called it “banging dancing disco for a creative generation” and said “if Euphoria had a sound, this would be it”. The track was also Record of the Week in the Camden New Journal who said "there's an element of French disco in Zkeletonz's new single...The guys have produced a happy dance floor-filler with an infectious hook".
The message in the lyrics is simply be yourself and enjoy life. Because things don’t have to be super complicated all the time, in your head or outside! We believe that's an essential message of unity and pride needed in the world right now. So above all we play to spread optimism; real music with heart for real lovers of music. Our basslines pump hard and our choruses soar up to the clouds. Join our movement!
For more on the feelings behind the song, read the interview with us in Demur Magazine titled “All that weird behaviour, Zkeletonz say Don’t Cover It Up”. By the way, one of us did a shit on a friend's sofa and blamed their cat. Sorry!
