Who are Skirt?
3 best buds from Corby tryna do some special things
How did you get together?
Mad story actually
Tell us about the ‘Is It?’ EP, and the launch shows to accompany it.
It’s our baby. We love it. A fusion of all our preferences, no two tracks the same. Fast and loud when deemed appropriate. EP release weekend begins the 30th March with a hometown show followed by date in Kettering then finished with our biggest headline to date at The Cookie in Leicester. We’re bringing along Luna Rosa, King Purple, Fatmate, and Drinsipa plus others to support our release and we can’t wait because they’re obviously the best bands about, and it only seemed necessary to get the best. That and because we love ’em all.
You seem to work hard, playing plenty of live shows. Is that where the band come alive, the stage?
As much as we enjoy playing live, wouldn’t necessarily say it’s where we come alive. Would like to say we share that quality when it comes to writing and recording
