“Officially. Emphatically. Undeniably.” - Ross Hepenstall, Yorkshire Evening Post
“That’s Skylights… sounding really good” - John Kennedy, Radio X
“The indie-rockers from York produce outstanding performances fizzing with energy and conviction throughout and have their loyal fans longing for more” - The Yorkshire Evening Post
Infusing brit pop and post punk influences from the likes of Oasis, Courteeners and The Verve, indie rock quartet Skylights are building a palpable buzz in the North. Following on from their debut single, ‘YRA’, which was featured on Leeds United 100-year anniversary video, Skylights have sold out headline shows at Belgrave music hall (350 capacity), The Wardrobe (450 capacity) and Leeds University sold out in less then a week (1000 capacity).
This has led to huge support slots with the likes of Shed Seven, The Sherlocks and The Pigeon Detectives, as well as sold out headline shows north of the border in Glasgow and Aberdeen.
Their number 2 UK physical charting hit ‘Enemies’ clinically evokes the cathartic lyrical presence of Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie which has led it to be picked up by Radio X’s new music guru John Kennedy and a live appearance on SkySports show Soccer AM. Skylights are set to assert themselves as one of the most exciting rock bands in the UK.
