SKYLIGHTS ARE AN INDIE ROCK BAND FROM YORKSHIRE
“Officially. Emphatically. Undeniably.” – Ross Heppenstall, Yorkshire Evening Post
“That’s Skylights… sounding really good” – John Kennedy, Radio X
“The indie-rockers from York produce outstanding performances fizzing with energy and conviction throughout and have their loyal fans longing for more” – The Yorkshire Evening Post
Infusing brit pop and post punk influences from the likes of Oasis, Courteeners and The Verve, indie rock quartet Skylights are building a palpable buzz in the North. Following on from their debut single, ‘YRA’, which was featured on Leeds United 100-year anniversary video, on October the 17th Skylights played a sold out Millennium Square Leeds to celebrate Leeds Uniteds birthday. Skylights have sold out headline shows at Belgrave music hall (350 capacity) and The Wardrobe (450 capacity) in Leeds. They have recently supported indie giants Twisted Wheel in Leeds.
Their most recent single ‘Britannia’ clinically evokes the cathartic lyrical presence of Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie which has led it to be picked up by Radio X’s new music guru John Kennedy. Skylights are set to assert themselves as one of the most exciting rock bands in the UK.
