Electronic indie-pop group, Skies, have recently released their latest track, Speed Boy. The three piece made up of vocalist and guitarist, Dusty Lee, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Micheal Zabolocki, and producer and keys, Micah Cearns have had a huge 2015, supporting the likes of Meg Mac, SAFIA and Tkay Maidza. They won 'Best New Artist' at the SA Music Awards and were crowned one of Rip It Up’s ‘Hot Six’ for 2016. Their single, Speed Boy, follows on from their 2015 hit singles, Too Young and Call For My Heart, this time bringing a track that is much more funkier than their previous, dreamy, emotive tracks.
Speed Boy shows the insane talent that is coming out of the band, with production levels that sound like the love child of Peking Duk and SAFIA. The infectious single is filled with a constant beat and bouncy, punchy synths that give the track a definite party vibe. The feel-good tune features a powerful chorus, filled with uplifting melodies and silky vocals. Speed Boy will have you dancing from the get-go and shows a more electronic-rock side of the band.
Skies also shared on their Facebook page that they are soon to announce a tour, so if you are yet to see the trio live, definitely stay tuned to find out where they will be bringing the beat to next. So give these Adelaide boys some love and listen to their latest single, Speed Boy, below.

A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
