Their name translates as fragile, yet Edinburgh’s four piece SKJØR are far from it.
As a band, their name (pronounced ‘sure’) has circulated through the Scottish music scene – for good reason. Dream pop melodies intertwine beneath ethereal vocals as their tracks come to a crisp close. Read below as we talk Girls Aloud, festivals and Electric Fields.
Also, click here to have a listen to their brand new track Living Without You.
3 words that sum up your sound?
Dreamy, Dark and Rhythmic!
Favourite song to you’ve ever written?
Our song Become Me because we feel it carries a powerful message about trying to live in other peoples shoes.
Favourite song to play live?
The One we love the energy and the groove. It sums up our dark and dreamy sound the best.
First festival you ever went to?
For most of us except Callum, Belladrum 2017 was our first big festival.
Best and weirdest festival moment to date?
Our best moment was seeing our t-shirts right next to Franz Ferdinand’s at Belladrum. Our weirdest moment was putting makeup on our guitarist Callum at Nothern Roots – he actually pulled off the drag queen in jogging bottoms and brogues look.
The last song you were listening to?
Phoenix – if I ever feel better, Warpaint – Dre
What excites you most about Electric Fields?
Fantastic opportunity for that band and people are getting so excited about it online. Being billed alongside great artists such as Aldous Harding & This Is The Kit.
Top 3 moments to still tick off the bucket list?
We would love to play around Europe & the US, to have our songs really mean something to people, release an album.
You’re ultimate guilty pleasure?
Lastly, what’s up next?
We will be releasing some singles. ‘Living Without You’ came out yesterday!
