Ocean County Alternative Rockers Skyeline formed in 2015 from students of Ocean County Vocational Technical School. Their influences include Death Cab For Cutie, The Killers, Deftones, Turnover and Failure. Their self-stated mission is “to experiment with letting different genres collide while retaining an honest and human element to songrwriting all while providing an entertaining live show.”
Skyeline recently released the single “Three Years.” It’s a great track with powerful, personal lyrics. Singer Brittany Byrne and Guitarist Brandon Cruz performed an acoustic version of the song on Jersey Rock back in March. Check out the video of their performance HERE. “Three Years” is available now via download HERE.
The video for “Three Years” was produced by Krupa Naik. It’s a well-shot, well-edited work that cuts back in forth between shots of the band enjoying life on the jersey shore and performing somberly in a basement. The song itself deals with regret and longing to rewind to a happier time. Naik does a great job of bringing that to life with the juxtaposition of the two very different demeanors and environments portrayed in the video.
Skyeline will release another single and video in the Fall. In the meantime they are keeping busy, playing a number of shows this August. On 8/1 you can catch them at Winward Beach in Brick for National Night Against Crime: Kids Night Out. On 8/5 they will be in action at Elliot’s Barber Shop in Toms River for Rock for Locks. Skyeline will join Mind Riot and Skrizzly Adams at Pier Village in Long Branch for 95.9 The Rat’s Jersey Rock Live At The Pier on 8/7.
Skyeline Singer/Guitarist Brittany Byrne will call in to Jersey Rock on Tuesday 8/1 at 11:30 pm and we’ll do the latest single from the band.
