How many rising bands can boast that their EP was co-written by two Veruca Salt members? Well, Washington-based grunge trio Skating Polly can!
Having already built significant support from fans and music critics following their last album The Big Fit, the band have announced their forthcoming EP, New Trick, set to be released 28th April via El Camino Media.
Veruca Salts’ Louise Post & Nina Gordon have helped pen the EP and their influence is very apparent, especially on new single, ‘Hail Mary’.
Stepsisters, Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse provide compelling harmonies that merge honeyed, melodic sensibilities with flaring riffs.
This won’t be groundbreaking for people, but they take influences from the likes of Nirvana, L7 right through to System Of A Down and pay them forward providing legitimate transcendence.
