Skin Mag - coastal breezes and shedding creative skin in the shed - hear "Tonight Show"


























Long Beach, California has produced a lot of great bands and Skin Mag is no exception. Rumor has it that this 5 piece band write and record all their music in a shed. Hey, it could be a luxury shed but I don't know any of the intimate details. The band formed in 2016 by singer / guitarist Shane Barton, bassist Davis Stewart, multi instrumentalists Noah Kurtz and Jack Nugent and drummer Devin Stewart. The track Tonight Show, a dreamy indie pop song with fluid lines of sound with cool downbeats. The dynamism feels blended and tightly compressed. There is a sweet wow factor and an intoxicated high to the sound. Maybe it is the coastal breeze that induces this transient vibe when they are not in the shed.
