“Officially. Emphatically. Undeniably.” - Ross Hepenstall, Yorkshire Evening Post
“That’s Skylights... sounding really good” - John Kennedy, Radio X
“The indie-rockers from York produce outstanding performances fizzing with energy and conviction
throughout and have their loyal fans longing for more” - The Yorkshire Evening Post
Infusing brit pop and post punk influences from the likes of Oasis, Courteeners and The Verve, indie
rock quartet Skylights are building a palpable buzz in the North. Following on from their debut single,
‘YRA’, which was featured on Leeds United 100-year anniversary video, Skylights have sold out
headline shows at Belgrave music hall (350 capacity), The Wardrobe (450 capacity) and Leeds
University sold out in less then a week (1000 capacity). In July 2022 they played their biggest ever
headline show to date at O2 Academy Leeds.
This has led to huge support slots with the likes of Shed Seven, The Sherlocks and The Pigeon
Detectives, as well as sold out headline shows north of the border in Glasgow, Edinburgh and
Their number 2 UK physical charting hit ‘Enemies’ clinically evokes the cathartic lyrical presence of
Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie which has led it to be picked up by Radio X’s new music guru John
Kennedy and a live appearance on Sky Sports show Soccer AM. Skylights are set to assert themselves
as one of the most exciting rock bands in the UK.
Skylights debut album, ‘What You Are’, achieved phenomenal success reaching number 34 in the UK
album charts, and featured tracks like ‘Darkness Falls’ and ‘Outlaw’.
2023 was a huge year for Skylights, which saw them perform at Millennium Square with Shed Seven
and Cast, TRNSMT Festival in Scotland, and sold out headline shows at Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen,
and Leeds Beckett SU.
