LONDONERS The Skints is back with second album Part & Parcel, which was funded by many fans during the band’s pledge campaign. Fortunately they were successful after a few months and after their fantastic cover of Katy B’s On A Mission blew up to over 100,000 hits on Youtube, it’s seemingly created the perfect time for the new album to be released.
Part & Parcel has a lot of genres on offer. From the spaced out instrumentation from opener Rise Up, to the fast paced lead single Rat-at-at to the poignant Just Can’t Take No More within the first three songs, all the way to the catchy innocence of Sunny Sunny, and the dub heavy soundscape of Rubadub (Done Know).
The introduction of keys bring an extra element to the tracks that also allows Part & Parcel to sound different from it’s predecessor Live, Breathe, Build, Believe. It creates a bigger relaxed atmosphere that accompanies the warm sunny weather or spring perfectly as well.
