With a new album ‘Hardly The Same Snake’ being released on 28th April via Partisan Records, it’s a great time for Skinny Pelembe.
Smooth, yet soothing vocals is a great way to describe Skinny Pelembe’s sound on the new track ‘Don’t Be Another’. It’s interesting and brings something different to the table.
Alternative rock has needed something unique for a while now as everything is beginning to blend together. This is where this talented artist comes to play.
The new track offers a hard-hitting look on life. Skinny Pelembe is known for amazing and stylish gigs that make viewers mesmerised. ‘Don’t Be Another’ is all of that one wonderful production.
This writer will keep an eye on the upcoming album and future singles as this artist, the music, and everything about him is one to admire.
Speaking about ‘Don’t Be Another’, Skinny Pelembe says: “New life and the end of it. You could find a place to hide behind your palms, eyes shut, digging out the past, like some lost scavenger. OR, you might find yourself in a better place if you ‘straighten out your spine, shoot for something GOOD, promise you won’t cry, and be the ties that bind.’ I’d actually just finished the album the night before, me and my manager zoomed around London blasting it out and he suggested I try and write a track for another bigger artist. Why not?
“Anyway, got dropped off at home, got the Gretsch out, put pen to paper. 20 minutes later it was fucking written! Verses, chorus, bridge, ALL OF IT. Fell right out the sky. Easy. Way too easy. And too good to share. Like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. One of the best songs I’ve written so far. Fuck giving this one to anyone else!”
