Skaters
“Everyone's pretending that they're making it on their own...That's a big part of living in New York City.”
Once upon a time, a mythical land called New York City was packed with devil may care dreamers, artists, and musicians stuffed into the darkest, parent-frightening corners of the city, creating fringe visions. Uncertainty abounded for the dreamers. Would anyone listen? Would anyone care?
The resounding answer: Whatever. Just create.
New York quartet Skaters isn't the sort of rattling punk death machine that would terrify your parents into telling you to stay the hell away from the East Village and locking you into your room, but they do their best to embody the classic ethos that accompanied New York's legendary layers of grit and grime in the 60s and 70s.
Skaters polishes their punk roots with a pop sheen and the run off of eclectic influences–Zeppelin, Queen, Nirvana, 80s R&B, proto-hip-hop. Their sound is a love letter to a city and all its foibles, a vision of New York familiar to any New Yorker: Idolizing the city even as they poke fun at it.
Fitting, then, that their debut record–the aptly titled Manhattan–is a flirtation with the city where Skaters' vision cohered, mashing subway noises, bits of conversation, observations of hipsters and hustlers, fakers and honest folk. It may not revive the old New York, but it’s a reminder that in a city with this many pocket, you can always create the world you wish to live in.
