Get to know Zkeletonz!
"We are UK pioneers of #POSTPOP, a new music movement; 100% DIY music inspired by postpunk and disco. Happy to be welcoming the 21st century (especially the electronics). Performing live and producing our own music with positivity and playfulness. We also create official remixes for artists like Jazz Mino, Femme and Youth Club. Our celebrity fans include hip hop DJ Tim Westwood, podcaster and actor Scroobius Pip and Wasps winger Josh Bassett. Other presenters on our old radio station included Suede, Klaxons and The Magic Numbers."
Got To Be Right is a favourite song for Zkeletonz fans, maybe due to the unforgettable chorus lines and contagious groove. It combines 1980s synthpop, chic millennial production and simple, fun party indie in a sugary, satisfying melange. If this track was food, it would definitely be dessert! The vocals fly high in the style of Scissor Sisters and Prince. The brave and simple synthesizer composition evokes classic indie acts like MGMT, LCD Soundsystem and Phoenix.
Always independent, Zkeletonz produce themselves and master final audio at Abbey Road Studios (The Beatles). With so much talent and innovation on display, surely the sky will not limit Zkeletonz, who instead can aim for Outer Space! Join them on the rocketship…
