Heavy and distorted bass licks are the first thing that drew me into Repenters new track “Skeletons” released on September 27th. The chorus hits and the change from confidence to more stretched thin sonically and emotionally brings “Skeletons” to a more personal level. A dark and dreamy vocal performance with plenty of melodic range and dynamics makes for a more engaging listen. Stream it below and find out more from the band!
FROM THE ARTIST:
The fiery Repenter are announcing the release of their new single “Skeletons.” The L.A.-based duo’s new single is the second offering from their upcoming EP-due out this fall. Comprised of vocalist Holly Winter and guitarist Thomas Scriven, Repenter bring their grungy, garage-rock energy to the forefront of today’s alternative scene.
This powerful new offering is a fantastic follow up to Repenter’s debut “So Sick.” Winter’s commanding and dynamic vocals can be likened to powerhouses like Kim Deal and Amy Winehouse. Complimented by a grunge-heavy rock soundscape, “Skeletons” is the kind of heavy-hitting rock we’re missing in our lives. Despite its complexity and unique intricacies, there is an underlying simplicity woven through the track that can be heard in the raw moments of Winter’s voice.
On the single Holly adds, “We wrote Skeletons around a rhythm. That one warm and steady tempo that kept our subconscious swaying and locked in to a peaceful bpm, ocean wave hypnosis. These lyrics are a deeply personal conversation.”
