Track Review - Skin to Bone:
Artist: The Jungle Giants
Track: Skin to Bone
Genre: indie-pop, indie-rock, aussie
The Jungle Giants have always been more at home with the strong pop influence in their indie-rock sound, and after checking out their much anticipated video for ‘Skin to Bone," it’s not so difficult to imagine why this group is making Australian charts. If you’re heading over to Australia this year, make sure you go and hear this band live! It’s one which impresses.
“Skin to Bone” (featured on their debut album Learn To Exist) is easily one of the band’s most experimental tracks yet, with a brilliantly catchy vocal opening and groovy guitar tunes, progressing into what could be labelled as the catchiest indie-pop track of the band. The chorus takes on an up-tempo pop/rock vibe with 70‘s rock hints in the old “wuh-ta-du-du-too-ooh-ooh-wooh-ooh” vocal riff. Sam Hales puts on an excellent performance, bringing back those heart warming lyrical content and kooky vocals. Quite different to anything we’ve heard from the band before – this being one of their most impressive release out of all their previous singles.
I personally love the sound
It’s a track with a killer feel-good melody, with powerful hard-drumming and jamming guitar riff breakdowns. Listeners could describe this song in warm adjectives; fun, colorful, powerful, energetic, bright and vibrant, and the list goes on. "Skin and Bone," finds The Jungle Giants steering into a more classic indie-rock sound. Youtube stream this most magnificent LED video:
