Fresh out of Washington, D.C., Skymender's debut album "If and Only" emerges with an immersive sound and a siren's force. Available for streaming, digital, and on limited edition orange vinyl on October 20th from Steadfast Records.
The dual vocals from Ashley Scurto and guitarist Kenny Grose volley into an ethereal haze–sounds which take shape through the efforts of drummer S. Dwayne Bruner (Cross My Heart, Government Issue), guitarist James Banta, and bassist Zahin Huq.
Self-described as shoegaze-adjacent, Skymender’s sounds invite you into a gauzy dreamworld. Their unique palette draws from post-punk, post-rock, emo, and dream pop to create a bright, lysergic-tinged tapestry.
From the inception of an idea to the final recording, Skymender's songwriting process is a distinctive confluence of talents. The many voices meld into one, creating a harmonious and otherworldly experience.
“If and Only” was recorded at the renowned Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore, Maryland. Engineered, mixed, and co-produced by J. Robbins.
