Having toured the US and gained radio play all over the globe, Manchester based Nearly Skulls have returned with a live video for their new single ‘Never Look back’ from their debut album ‘Bucket Listening’. Capturing their giant indie rock sound with only three members, the live video truly demonstrate what a competent live band Nearly Skulls are, while also keeping on-brand, hiding their faces behind three skulls which cover their faces, retaining the bands air of mystery.
Their bony visages let the music do the talking. The Who-esque choruses; U2 dynamics and casual nods to genres as seemingly disparate as prog, glam and metal show a deep knowledge of music as well as a real mastery of their instruments, with their stunning visuals demonstrating that this most mesmerising of bands can add more than a little flesh to the bones of their music, if not their faces.
Masked supergroup? Twisted teenagers? Dangerous pensioners? Nearly Skulls might remain anonymous for now but their debut album, Bucket Listening, is the indie rock mega-skeleton which promises a summer of hits…no bones about it.
