The Skeletones Four’s Gravestone Rock available now. Toronto release show tonight.
Led by Andrew Collins (vocals/guitar/keyboards/horns), The Skeletones Four are rooted in classic pop sensibilities, which turn out sounding rather weird in translation; at the end of some through line between the Beach Boys, Booker T. and the MGs, the Gories, and Giorgio Moroder, you’ll find the S4, quietly tuning up. When Collins brings his song ideas to band mates Evan Gordon (bass/vocals), Jordan Howard (guitar/vocals), and John Merritt (drums), things get fuzzy and explosive, with unusual time signatures, ping ponging guitars, and ghostly vocal harmonies bubbling together to form their idiosyncratic, startlingly super-charged sound.
