GILLBANKS EP Lend Me Your Skin out now!
“a rough-around-the-edges fusion of DIY indie and classic songwriting” – Gigwise
“a hypnotic blend of dreamy, bombastic Britpop and downcast grunge” – Pop Matters
For Fans of… Nirvana, The Flaming Lips, Real Estate
Lend Me Your Skin is a coming of age record about identity and self-acceptance. With lyrics like ‘over-tired and underworked, it’s always on my mind, I’m just trying to be a man’ it’s not difficult to see where in his life Sam started writing music. He quickly found a release for his creative ideas and frustration to form Lend Me Your Skinas an EP that is both ferocious and beautiful, whilst also maintaining lyrical depth.
Originally from Falmouth, GILLBANKS now resides in London where he continues to play the London circuit on a regular basis with live band members Hugo Heaverman (drums), Henry Nicholson (guitar, vocals) and Joe Morris (bass).
