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.
After a busy 2016 including a Saturday night headline slot at Whelan’s Summer One’s to Watch and The Roisin Dubh’s summer Shindig alongside Search Party Animal and Bitch Falcon, Bob Skeleton ended 2016 on a high with a headline Whelan’s Midnight Hour and a sold out gig in The Roisin Dubh in support of their debut EP ‘Shade’. 2017 has continued the momentum, opening for Otherkin in the Roisin Dubh and releasing their second EP ‘If This Isn’t Love’.
The group released their third EP, 'Boiling Point' on the 16th of June. 'Boiling Point' was recorded in Willow Sea Studios Galway with Will O'Connor (Grounds For Invasion) and mastered by Matt Colton (Christine & The Queens, Muse, Temples).
'Frayed by the darker elements of the genre, ‘Quiver’ has enough melody and forward motion to pull it through. Especially given the slight indie-rock touches, Bob Skeleton weave into the track.
‘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
"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
"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
"..It has been a long time since a band has whetted our appetite like this." - Unsigned & Independent
