After what seemed like fans were having to wait forever for New York City’s hottest unknown band, The Skins, to emerge, it’s a refreshing relief to have them finally release some new content lately while gearing up for their first label backed album release next Friday, December 16.
On Thursday the band premiered the official music video for their debut single, “Bury Me” which also features the rapper known as D.R.A.M. “Bury Me” was initially released back on October 28, and has since gained the band their first real attention outside of NYC, gathering up plenty of streams on Spotify as the young group gears up for 2017.
The video, which casts the spotlight on both D.R.A.M. and the band’s powerful and seductive singer Bay Li, and captures her ideas of both strength and sexuality through art.
"I’ve gotten past that point in my life, I’ve grown from it, I’ve evolved from it," Bay Li said to go with the video's release on how the story its trying to tell is a spin off of her own experiences coming out of a toxic relationship. "So, for the video to come off strong, like, 'even though you’re kind of f**king with me, I like it, I can take it, I’m a woman, I’m strong.' I think that’s dope and I hope people feel that vibe."
The band’s debut EP, Still Sleep, will feature both “Bury Me,” and their second single, “Runaway,” when it drops via American Recordings/Republic Records a week from today.
