Une bande d’amis aux cheveux blonds séchés par le soleil, des bières, du skate… Pas de doute, on est bien en Australie. À Byron Bay plus précisément. C’est bon, vous avez la carte postale en tête ? Manque plus qu’une bande de potes, des riffs garage rock et punk ouatés qui ondulent sous un soleil de plomb et on a Skegss. Trois mecs australiens jusqu’au bout du cheveu qui clament leur amour à l’été continu.
Ben Reed (vocals, guitar), Toby Cregan(bass) and Jonny Lani (drums) – have charmed listeners with their warm garage-punk sound, selling out shows all across the country.
SKEGSS have made a name for themselves with energetic live performances, garnering praise from The Music for their « infectious » on-stage chemistry and Moshcam who asserted they « seem to have some sort of hypnotic effect over their fans.”Skegss have played at festivals across the country and overseas including a headline slot at Sounds of the Suburbs, Splendour in the Grass and the upcoming Groovin’ The Moo circuit to name a few.
With an album set to be released this year through Ratbag Records, a UK tour which includes appearances at The Great Escape and Dot to Dot festivals, a single tour in June and multiple festival appearances – Skegss are one of the most energetic and exciting bands in Australia.
