Skinner returns with the slacker grunge pop alchemy of ‘Slouch’

The Dublin musician Skinner is back with news of a debut EP and a followup single to the impressive ‘Headroom’ which we featured back here in February.

Continuing Skinner’s hit-rate for guitar music with alchemic nuanced elements, ‘Slouch’ is a slacker grunge track with rolling bassline that adds urgency and tension to counteract the song’s sentiment of fatalism with a Nirvana reference to boot. Skinner is developing a thick skin for making interesting rock music out of an established genre – no easy feat.

Skinner plays Soma with Jooce in the Workman’s on September 27th.

Skinner – ‘Slouch’ lyrics

Slouch around man they don’t like my posture
Put my head down make me feel like the imposter
Always complaining you can’t handle the weight
Look me in the eyes and stand up fucking straight
I’m not a negative creep, but man my neck has a creek
Curvature of the spine, my vertebrae are all weak
Hunched over and staring down at the floor
What’s the point in even looking up anymore
I said ah
You’ve got to know now
The weights too much and its crushing down on my lungs now
I am not scared
The realignment of bone and tissue tears
And man its bringing me down
And man she’s bringing me down
And man you’re bringing me down
And man they’re bringing me down
And man he’s bringing me down
And man she’s bringing me down
And man you’re bringing me down
And man they’re bringing me
DOWN
Don’t wanna slouch around
My back is broken the world is tryna put me down
Hunched over and staring down at the floor
Ever get the feeling your voice is being ignored?
Don’t wanna slouch around
Don’t wanna listen to me
Don’t wanna make a sound
Hunched over and staring down at the floor
What’s the point in even looking up anymore
Anymore
Slouch around man we’ve got too complacent
The worlds outdated in need of replacement
Through gritted teeth we smile and sell the lie
The disappointment is always swallowed dry
They want you dead in the head
With constant feelings of dread
Curvature of the mind, can’t seem to get out of bed
Hunched over and staring down at the floor
What’s the point in even waking up anymore
I said ah

You’ve got to know now
Can’t live a life in a world that only slows down
Just be prepared
For realignment of everything you cared about
And man its bringing me down
And man she’s bringing me down
And man you’re bringing me down
And man they’re bringing me down
And man he’s bringing me down
And man she’s bringing me down
And man you’re bringing me down
And man they’re bringing me
DOWN
I hope that I don’t say the wrong thing X6
I feel like I might say the wrong thing
I think I’m gonna say the wrong thing
