There are moments when this newest single from All Dogs feels larger than words could ever hope to capture. “Skin” cautiously reveals a moment in a relationship that’s “a quiet familiar feeling,” but so poisoned and doomed from the start. The anxiety of waiting for “everything to fall,” echoed over five minutes of subdued, stunning rock that continues to blossom and soar. It’s desperation, it’s heartfelt and it’s intimate - “just wanna feel skin, just wanna let you in.”
“Skin” comes from the band’s debutKicking Everyday out 8/29 through Salinas Records. They’ll play 8/26 at Mr. Roboto Project.
