The Sky

WITH a few demo tracks online to savour, newest Liverpool trio, The Sky have already made quite the impression amongst some of the city's most adored critics.

Sporting a vivid style, a raspy dream-like harmony is thrown heavily onto a solid formation of steady rhythmic. Already securing dates with local favourites, Sankofa at their EP Launch and Australian based blues band, The High Learys, the threesome are about to shake up the scene for 2015.

This isn't all, as they have worked with music legend, Mark Hudson who has a back catalogue spanning for nearly fifty years working with artists such as Harry Nilsson and Ringo Starr. The produce of this collaboration has been uploaded upon the bands soundcloud, which you can listen to here;

Of the two rarities there sits track 'Miles Away'. With a voice branded in local dialect, Johnny Taylor channels his inner George Harrison and provides a potent slur mashed with Lennon's point blank frankness, much reminiscent of the experimental Revolver tainted with a psychedelic sprinkle of track, Within You Without You. Rippling bass lines from Andrew Ward are succulently partnered with a rumbling beat from Connor Colford giving a highly charged emphasis on a wholesome instrumental, grounding the track within the foundations of guitar based music.

Supposing it was unfair to comment on such a likeness to nearly every great Beatle creation, The Sky do certainly hold their own ground, as both tracks, including 'In The Sky' boast a whole host of knowledge waiting to be tailored to a tightly bonded group of innovative artists who are in such a popular categorisation however provide the means to stand out from the crowd. There's just something about this trio that get's the hairs on your neck stand on end, the fire in your belly exhume and those goosebumps to crawl up your arm. Here we have a band ready to stand the test of time.
