The Skins / Press

“I came across this young Brooklyn-based band some time last year when a friend told me about their Kickstarter page, they were raising funds to start this band called the Skins. Being a fan of Kickstarter and of course DIY I was instantly interested and hoped the music would be as innovative as their approach. Half a year later I was not disappointed. The Skins, consisting of siblings Bayli, Reef, and Kaya Mckeithan, along with friends Daisy Spencer and Russell Chell, showing a maturity beyond their years, have released a 3-track EP. If you like these guys check out some of my other favorite bands EARL GREYHOUND, THE LONDON SOULS and THE MEMORIALS.”

“When I first heard The Skins' "Summertime," I thought it sounded vaguely like Rage Against The Machine as told through the aggressive, long-forgotten voice of Led Zeppelin's orphaned "children." Formed @ Brooklyn's own [Paul Green] School of Rock, The Skins consists of 3 siblings: Bayli (18), Kaya (16), and Reef Mckeithan (13), along with friends Daisy Spencer (18) and Russell Chell (19) on guitar. Indeed talented far beyond their lack of collective years, The Skins started up-keeping a pretty rigorous Manhattan/Brooklyn area touring schedule @ some point during Summer 2011.”

“I recently stumbled upon this rock band from Brooklyn called The Skins and I’ve gotta say they’re fantastic. You know when you’re only about 20 seconds into a song and decide you already like everything about the artist..? Yeah, that’s pretty much how I felt with them. There’s only three songs on their bandcamp page (for now, I hope) but I’ve had those same three songs on repeat for quite some time now. Not mad. Not mad at all. Moral of the story here folks; check them out, I think you’ll like them.”
