Exclusive premiere: Band of Skulls “Hometown”

032712_Band_of_Skulls

Southampton export, Band of Skulls, weren’t fully appreciated in their native kingdom until they had first roused audiences across the rest of the world. Touring, with a memorable soundtrack for a Mustang commercial — “I wanna see you in the morning!” — combined with other bits of luck like the inclusion on a “Twilight” soundtrack gave them a ton of unexpected attention.

They say the were insulated from all the teen throbbing, but knew something was up when, “for a period of a couple of months we saw younger people turning up to shows in Edward Cullen T-shirts, but they sort of disappeared again,” noted bassist/vocalist Emma Richardson.

Watch the band in this short documentary talk about going from working the bars to the relief they feel now, playing music in a hometown that appreciates them.
