Skinny Downers – ex-bedroom project turned electronic duo comes home
What you may need to know…
01. The latest incarnation of Skinny Downers is a two-piece based in Berlin. A far cry from the project’s beginnings as a few instruments and a loop pedal somewhere in Waterford.
02. Founded by Dean O’Sullivan, formerly of the Deise’s Black Robots and Percolator, the project quickly shape-shifted to a live collective, to a band, to a duo, fronted by Sardinian punk performance artist Stella Sesto.
03. Streaming above is the band’s newest EP, Kill Figures, released in April of this year.
Verdict: Oddly groovy, moody, sparse alternative with tinges of noise and electronica.
