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.

04. Catch them tomorrow night in Cork at The Kino, in a BYOB affair also featuring local lads Land Crabs and Kinsale’s Foreign Bodies.

Verdict: Oddly groovy, moody, sparse alternative with tinges of noise and electronica.
