London's The Skinner Brothers share "Away Days"

Back in June London's The Skinner Brothers shared their new laid back anthem, "Away Days", which sounds like it could be one of those tunes that'll be played an awful lot during a football world cup. The new release is their third single of 2020 following on form their AA side release "All Our Days/No Sex Life" and "Pluto Farmer".

Having well over 26k monthly listeners on Spotify, with the band getting well over 1.3 million plays in the process you'd expect them to have released a blinder of a track and once you listen to "Away Days" then you'll know that's exactly what it is!

"Away Days" has sweet indie-rock melodies that start the track off with the guitar tones reminding us of The Kooks and Bloc Party. When the vocals then come in and you're taken away on a three minute blissful ride with the band, with chanting backing vocals that hark back to those sort of chants you'd expect to hear in a football ground, and that's exactly what it's suppose to sound like as the track is written as an ode to missing football - one of the many things that stopped when Covid-19 took over the world.

Speaking about "Away Days" frontman Zachary says - "The song arose from my love of football culture, I'd been wanting to write a song that captures the essence of match-day for a long while and with "Away Days" I feel I've done it. The song takes inspiration from the jukebox classics played in the pubs, along with the fashion togetherness that the football brings!"

The Skinner Brothers are well known in the London scene as such a hard working band, and with "Away Days" it sounds like they're ready for the next stage of their career, it's such a melodic and laid back tune that is highly addictive and will always have you wanting for more.

With the band being playlisted on Spotify's Fresh Finds, Hot New Bands and The Punk List and airplay on BBC Radio 1, Radio X and even spins down in Australia on Valley 89.5FM the band are not stopping there and will be back soon with yet another track that'll warm your heart. Remember the name - The Skinner Brothers - they'll be around for a long time yet, just keep an eye on those festival bills for 2021 as we feel like they'll be a hot band to have on!
