SKEGSS – the DIY, beer-drinking and self-producing maniacs from the surf coast who took out last year’s triple j Unearthed Splendour in the Grass competition – return to announce their sophomore EP Everyone Is Good At Something led by new track and killer rock n roll tune ‘My Face’.
Everyone Is Good At Something will drop Friday July 15 via Ratbag Records. ‘My Face’ is available to stream now via Soundcloud and will be available to purchase this Friday June 17 through all digital retailers.
Coming in at just under 3 minutes, ‘My Face’ is pure, unadulterated rock n roll and the summery sounding tune we’ve all been praying for after a brutal winter’s start. Jangly guitars frame the track against fast-paced drums while singer Ben Ben Bograil sings about those life anxieties that we all feel but sometimes aren’t too willing to share, “this song is about feeling good and feeling bad – if yesterday sucked, make today not suck.” The themes explored on ‘My Face’ continue on their EP’s seven tracks as well, through their positive attitudes towards life and just keeping it real.
Signing to Dune Rats’ label Ratbag Records for the release of their debut EP 50 Pushups for A Dollar which spawned the singles ‘Fun’ and ‘Eat It’, SKEGSS have proved to be one of Australia’s most exciting up and coming bands. The Byron Based three-piece a trail-blazed through a Summer of national tours with multiple sold out shows, festival slots on the likes of Mountain Sounds, Yours & Owls, Sounds of the Suburbs and Festival of the Sun and international tours in the United States, Canada, South America and the tropic corners of New Caledonia, plus a coveted spot on the annual BIGSOUNDconference last year.
SKEGSS are Ben Ben Bograil (guitar/vocals), Toby Two String (bass) and Jonny Layback (drums).
