The LA-based duo pay tribute to 90s R&B with a decidedly modern sound.
Skin Town is comprised of Zola Jesus collaborator Nick Turco and vocalist Grace Hall. The duo’s synth-heavy compositions fit nicely with contemporary R&B, with seductive lyrics and melodies reminiscent of 90s hitters like Ginuwine; fans of The Weeknd and The-Dream will find plenty to like.
Their debut album, The Room, is due out on October 28 via Time No Place. The cover art and tracklisting are below, along with a handful of album’s songs. If smokey jams ‘Slidin’ and ‘Ride’ and the scintillating ‘Ice Crystal Palace’ are anything to go by, The Room could be the autumn/winter soundtrack — for the bedroom.
