Skyhill

BandAlternativeEDM

alt-rock electronica - mixing up dance-floor euphoria and down-tempo moodiness, all by a live quartet of vocals, guitars, keys and drums.

Biography

New York's Skyhill was formed in the winter of 2006, when Dan Avidan and Peter Lennox connected through their love of atmospheric, beat-heavy anthems.
Writing and recording throughout 2006 and early 2007, with Dan on vocals and Peter on guitars & keyboards, the band completed what would become their debut album, 'Run With The Hunted' (self-produced), in the summer of 2007.
The album's sound -- a meld of downtempo electronica, European house, and alt/indie rock -- reflected the influence of the band's many musical heroes, such as Zero 7, Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, and U2.

Skyhill's live show is rounded out by the inimitable talents of Elena Belan (keyboards/triggers, background vocals), and X (drums, percussion), and features a
hypnotizing visual display by Broken Lens Studios. In an effort to expand and evolve their live sound, the band has also begun incorporating a string quartet into their sets, as well as playing improvised dance remix versions of their songs.

Their album is available at most of the east-coast indie shops, as well as
iTunes, Amazon, and Skyhill's own website, skyhillmusic.com.
