From the deepest depths of the Swindon music scene surfaces SkyBurnsRed, an eclectic rock band with a orchestral twist. Although guitar and violin would rarely associate under normal circumstances, the haunting tones of the classical instrument become electrified and entangled in the heavy rock foundations creating the bands striking sound.
Swaying towards the grungier, heavier end of the band spectrum, SkyBurnsRed have been likened to the sound of Biffy Clyro, Manchester Orchestra and early Foo Fighters. Injecting musical inspiration from icons such as Nirvana, Incubus and Hundred Reasons, the band’s distinctive instrumentals and vocals set them aside from any other generic, wannabe rock bands.
In the last year the band have flourished, recording their first official EP, Madness and Reason, at the Vale Studios and regularly featuring on BBC Wiltshire Introducing. The highlight of SkyBurnsRed’s CV is a recent gig at the Indigo2 at London’s o2 arena. This is just one of copious support and headline slots they’ve triumphed across the country and around their local stomping ground of Wiltshire.
