For those about to rock…

…I suggest adding The Skins to your queue.

Siblings Bayli, Reef and Kaya Mckeithan, and their pals Daisy Spencer and Russell Chell are behind Brooklyn’s The Skins. The band, which was recently listed among The Fader’s “6 Young Artists Rick Rubin Likes Right Now,” knows how to rock and it’s no surprise Rubin is currently working with the crew on their debut album. skins happy

The Skins press all the right buttons and hit all the right curves and bends in their brand of classic punk meets psychedelic twang, meets good ol’ rock n roll, a la Wolfmother, Tame Impala, Black Lips. Not even 60 seconds in to “Dead Hands” and you’ll not only be begging to experience a live performance, but wondering where they’ve been all your life.

To hear from The Skins, tune in to the Diagnosis on WUSC 90.5 FM in Columbia or on
