Skinnerbox open this new EP with ‘Sawtooth Blues’, a composition of more than 8 minutes in which synthesizers with bass sounds, undulating melodies merge with African, ethnic, tribal voices by completing a delight of composition that we catch in its rhythms and ethnic voices that take us to travel mentally through the universe and a cosmic dance.
With ‘Sally’, Skinnerbox are more energetic, forceful, a powerful percussion, with a jerky voices, cries and a synths with retro sounds that hypnotizes us completely, full of details of production, fresh and funny composition.
Finally, ‘Trimorph’, shows us a Skinnerbox more cosmic, strange, with alien synthesizers along with a collection of strange sounds that are forming the composition to create an atmosphere full of mystery and captivating, excellent composition.
