After a series of barn-storming shows throughout Europe this month, SKINNY LISTER set a course for the second leg of their UK tour and head for home with a new single in their sails: ‘My Life, My Architecture’.
Arriving like the epilogue to your favourite novel, the folk-punk sextet follow the release of their intrepid fourth album ‘The Story Is…’ with this apt and irresistible latest excerpt from it. Watch the video for it here: https://youtu.be/nEqkZ_5NrVo
“On one hand ‘My Life, My Architecture’ is an empowering song about being in control of your own destiny, creating your own story. It’s our nod to existentialism and freedom of choice. We are a product of our life decisions.” says Dan Heptinstall of the track.
“On the other hand – the chorus of the song, complete with a key-shift, reflects the uncertainty of the risks we take in life; those leaps of faith that are needed from time to time that help to keep life surprising and exciting.”
Complimenting the song’s essence of duality, Lorna Thomas & Dan Heptinstall vocals duel dizzyingly through one of their most complex and compulsively catchy choruses to date. Blue-printed by the band with the baroque-pop organ flurries and torpedo-like tremolo guitar breaks, ‘My Life, My Architecture’ was given the finishing touches by producer Barny Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, The Enemy, The Temper Trap) to stand tall as one of the band’s most ludicrously enjoyable pop edifices to date.
Bursting with potential for big crowd singalongs and rippling with the kind of irrepressible energy that pulses though their live shows, it may come as no surprise that ‘My Life, My Architecture’ has already been going down a storm with those fans who have been lucky enough to catch ‘The Story Is…’ shows so far.
With KERRANG! recently praising “every moment” of their recent shows as “drenched in gloriously ramshackle character, with crashing sea shanties and heartfelt protest songs swirling in a saltily potent mix”; don’t be dragging your flagon when the Skinnies return to the UK to hit-up Edinburgh, Newcastle, Nottingham, Manchester, Cambridge andLondon on their second leg this April.
