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 – are stoked to drop a brand new video for their new track ‘My Face’, together with a national tour in support of their forthcoming EP, Everyone Is Good At Something. The Everyone Is Good At Something Tour will travel around the country this August and September with supports from Dump Punts and Verge Collection.
As the first cut from their new EP, ‘My Face’ comes in at just under 3 minutes and is pure, unadulterated summery rock n roll, with Pilerats noting that “even though we've just barely stepped into winter, this one will make you feel like it's 32 degrees outside”. 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 throughout their EP as well, through their positive attitudes towards life and just keeping it real.
SKEGSS have proved to be one of Australia’s most exciting up and coming bands – 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’, 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.
