Galway, County Galway
Bob Skeleton are a 4 piece Late Night-Pop band from Galway with influences ranging from La Roux to New Order, and Lykke Li to Blondie. Intertwining late night grooves with shimmering melodies to create a wide-screen blend of West Coast cool and Mancunian tracks.
2017 saw the band accumulate a loyal, cult following with the release of two EPs and a single, along with a series of headline shows which saw rooms being filled, as well as well received support slots to reputable acts such as HamsandwicH and Otherkin. They also made their Electric Picnic debut on the Body&Soul mainstage, showing their ability to captivate even larger audiences.
Bob Skeleton released standalone single, ‘If You Want’ on May 25th 2018, and embarked on a nationwide tour in its support. ‘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).
In late 2018, the group made their UK debut to a full house at The Fiddler’s Elbow, Camden. Bob Skeleton closed their 2018 account supporting Le Boom at a sold out Roisin Dubh on NYE.
Bob Skeleton opened their 2019 account with the release of their new single 'After You' on the 22nd of March 2019. It is their first entirely self produced track, and was mastered by Robin Schmidt (The 1975, Blossoms, Two Door Cinema Club).
‘Wielding some of the catchiest melodies you’ll hear all weekend’ - Golden Plec on BS at Electric Picnic
"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
"..It has been a long time since a band has whetted our appetite like this." - Unsigned & Independent
