Follow SKULS on:
Question 1: What got you guys into making music?
We both first met in middle school and started making beats and mashups. As time went on, we got better and better and created different projects for our music. SKULS is the climax of 5-6 years of experimenting, learning, and figuring out who we are and how to express it.
Question 2: What people intrigue you or inspire you both to pursue music?
Although many people inspire our sound, I think what really inspires us in music is originality. Whenever your art comes from a true place, it's infectious. This is why it's disheartening and aggravating to see artists chase after trends when they have the means to create their own path. Where is the individuality?
Question 3: How would you define SKULS's style of music?
SKULS style is based on a combination of who we are as people and the experiences we have been through. This blending of ideas and culture leads to this whole new sound and image that we find through collaboration. We have been heavily influenced by rap and electronic music so we try and mesh the two together as best we can.
Question 4: What influences your guys' style of work?
Right now a lot of sounds coming from the UK are heavily influencing us as well as Bay Area music. The scenes in both of these places contribute to a community where artists can take music from their area and shape it into their own style and story.
Question 5: What is your favorite track you guys have produced so far?
I think it's a tie from some songs off our Terminal EP. "Lotusville" and "Movements" are definitely our favorites right now due to the meaning behind them and the risks we took on creating them.
Question 6: How far do you guys plan to take your music, any goals in mind? Who would you like to work with in the future?
We want to be able to survive doing this and have an impact on the culture. We also hope to inspire people to look at music as a channel and not just a product. As far as collaborations go, we just want to make music with people who are bringing something unique to the table.
