Skin Mag – This Just In: A Rhythmically Anthemic Post-Punk Resonance

When a track makes the hairs on the back of your neck to stand to attention to the aural masterpiece that is currently reverberating through you it can almost be impossible to describe the sound. Which is exactly the problem I had listening to Skin Mag’s single This Just In, the Indie band threw Post-Punk, Post-Rock and Shoegaze in a blender to create a decadently raw masterpiece of a track.

With a dreamily melodic rhythm the guitar-driven, synth-swamped track progresses through the lucidly cathartic arrangements to leave you in a transient state of appreciation for Skin Mag’s conceptual sound which would be bordering on haunting it weren’t for the up-vibe glow which the instrumentals audibly possess. At this point, I should probably point out that Skin Mag’s music is incomparable to that of any Post-Punk predecessors thanks to the vocals which are untraditionally delicate, raw and utterly cathartic.

You can check out Skin Mag’s latest anthemically amplified single This Just In over on SoundCloud now – with such a promising debut it’s hard not to get a little bit excited about the potential of Skin Mag. I’m already dying for an album!
