Galway, County Galway
Bob Skeleton are a 4 piece Midnight-Pop band from Galway with influences including Miles Kane, Tame Impala and Lana Del Rey. Intertwining late night grooves with shimmering melodies to create a dynamic blend of West Coast cool and Mancunian mood.
2017 was a busy year for the band, releasing their second and third EP’s respectively in ‘If This Isn’t Love’ and ‘Boiling Point’, as well as the stand alone single ‘See the Moon’. To compliment a year of recording they also took their tightly honed live show across the country, including headline slots in Whelan’s and The Roisin Dubh respectively to full capacity rooms, as well as support slots with HamsandwicH and Otherkin.
They also made their Electric Picnic debut on the Body&Soul mainstage, showing their ability to captivate even larger audiences. After taking a brief break early in the year due to their drummer's academic commitments, Bob Skeleton took their revamped live show across the country to a wonderful reception in June 2018.
Bob Skeleton released ‘If You Want’ on May 25th 2018.
‘If You Want' was recorded in H. Keep Studios and Willow Sea Studios by Rory Ryan and Will O'Connor, and produced by Will O'Connor and Bob Skeleton. Mastering by Matt Colton (Jungle, Temples, Christine and the Queens).
‘Wielding some of the catchiest melodies you’ll hear all weekend’ - Golden Plec
"The EP’s real highlight though is on the stripped back ‘Radio’, a pared down, acoustic number that allows for the group’s knack for emotive, sincere songwriting to shine through." - The Thin Air on 'If This Isn't Love' EP
"I found myself a bit flummoxed by 'Living In The Deep End', there's just every chance that this could be one of my favourite Irish tracks of 2017 by year's end." - Remys Music and Film Blog
‘Quiver’ is a promising song that shows Bob Skeleton are a band more than capable of holding their own with the likes of the North Sea, Girls Names and Slow Riot.’ – The Last Mixed Tape
"..It has been a long time since a band has whetted our appetite like this." - Unsigned & Independent
