NEW MUSIC: Skelatin – It Takes The Pain Away

1537159410013

If you ever wondered about the lasting influence of The Strokes then a sure sign of their ongoing infiltration in the songwriting and sound of young bands can be found in this quickfire and clever slice of indie rock, one that finds a sweet spot between blank-eyed slacker rock and knotty musical intellectualism.

Skelatin, led by Sam Levine,  hail from New Orleans and this track is one half of their 2018 two-track EP of the same name.
