Times/Tides – Sleep/Sunrise – Work/Worth: There’s an undeniable line that runs through the releases of Berlin-based Englishman Jorma Ruben and his band SKELETON SKIES. The entire concept of all releases deals with the clash of oppositions, his arrival in the German capital and finding the place where he belongs, personally and artistically. The forthcoming Work/Worth EP marks the last in a trilogy of 4-track EPs and NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION is happy to premiere its title-track today, ahead of the official release on October 20.
If you happen to be a fan of energetic new wave vibes in the style of TALKING HEADS and PREFAB SPROUT the sound of SKELETON SKIES might appeal to you quite easily. Expect joyful lo-fi indie pop rock that will light up your Tuesday in an instant.
