If all good things come in small packages, expect to listen to this song and get one of the best surprises from a dynamic duo from Jackson, Tennessee. Hunter Cross and Cameron Briley make up the members of The Skeleton Krew and their latest offering called “Love”, is already making some serious waves on the internet.
The song starts off with sweet, intricately woven harmonies, reminiscent of Crosby, Stills and Nash or Alison Krauss, and one would be forgiven for thinking that they were about to take us on a journey down the best of a scenic Country or Soft Rock road. Instead, a few face melting guitar solos, talented drum rolls and riffs that are played deep in the pocket, and an incredible vocal performance, make for a heady mix of Punk, Rock, and Goth that is teeth clatteringly good. It’s eight short bars in the back of Buick but the rest is pedal to the metal in a Mustang all the way!
You are going to want to rewind this track a few times as the musicality and vocal dexterity is subtle but brilliant.

Are You Real? was produced by Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice, Foals) and Jim Kaufman (ANTI-FLAG) to help form the band’s new alternative vein that hearkens to the sonic likes of Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood, The Kills, The Struts, Skaters and even Nirvana.
Frontman Kyle Nicolaides‘s journey has come full circle, since the release of the band’s debut album Orthodox in 2013, which landedTOP 30 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers Chart, and garnered high praise from Rolling Stone, Fuse, American Songwriter, and more. After touring with Cage The Elephant, The Wombats, Soundgarden, STP, AWOLNATION and Jane’s Addiction, plus making their debut at the Reading and Leeds Festival, the trolling the depths and sludging through the bleak, Are You Real? is the story of how a rock star on the rise fought uncertainty and disillusionment to avoid flaming out. And, more importantly, how Nicolaides has come through the other side revitalized and focused, and with the best songs of his young career.
