Label: Self- Released
Non-Airable Tracks: 2, 5, 13
Skegss (skeggs?? skkegs??? idk I somehow spell it wrong every time) is a surf rock trio from Australia, which is exactly as cool as it sounds. My Own Mess is their first full length album, even though they’ve been releasing EPs and singles since 2014. I personally got very into the Skegss this summer, before this album was released, when the single ‘Spring Has Sprung’ appeared in one of my Spotify daily mixes. The album is full of catchy lyrics about topics that fit the less-than-serious mood of most garage rock, which makes it fun and an easy listen. “Up in the Clouds” is my favorite off the album by far, because of the slow build in the beginning that makes it extra fun when the song picks up. Overall, the album is chock-full of bangers, and makes me wish I was coordinated enough to go pick up a skateboard and start riding.
Sounds Like: Hockey Dad, Remo Drive, The Frights
1 – “Up in the Clouds” – really fun, classic banger!!
3 – “Transaction Fee” – is complaining about the $2.50 an ATM charges you to withdraw money, relatable??? and also a banger
