Stream: Skelocrats – Lyin’ Eyes


With their recently-completed new album, Charles II, set for released in March, Dublin quartet Skelocrats have released a self-proclaimed “yearning folk-rock ballad.” Having listened to it a handful of times already, that about perfectly sums it up in our ears.

Driven forth by Bronwyn Murphy-White’s lamenting vocals, the track is a short and sweet 50s-echoing tale, all swooning and jangly and positively delightful. The last twenty seconds are particularly satisfying.

Stream the track by the Popical Island band below.
