"Danger danger danger – all the girls in red." - Skinjobs single "Rachael" plays like a dark art rock warning





























Skinjobs new single Rachael bristles with heavy synth lines and Katja Laaksonen's dramatic postured vocal performance. The result feels like something between industrial goth rock pushed through horror punk filters. It feels like the stuff of sci-fi-ish dystopian day dreams and no wonder as the song itself is inspired by The Handmaid's Tale and Blade Runner as written by Laaksonen herself. Her art rock / baroque pop style makes you think Kate Bush and Bat For Lashes and her musical prose is influenced by New Wave, feminist literature and Brit pop styles. 

Skinjobs hails from Helsinki, Finland and are Katja Laaksonen, Arto Alho, Ville Leino, Antti Lustila.
