about

The Skipping Forecast are an experimental pop duo who blend guitar, vocals, and percussive electronics into harmonised dreamlike songscapes.

Formed in Sheffield, within The Audacious Art Experiment collective, Sophia Pettit (Vocals/Guitar) and Luke Twyman (Percussion, Tones, Vocals) first began writing acoustic songs together as a side project to main bands at the time. After a summer of unplugged shows around the USA, the pair continued working on new material in Sheffield as well as their remote mountain dwelling in Italy. They soon found themselves instinctively delving into darker and more atmospheric domains, utilising Twyman's range of improvised analogue instruments (dictaphones, walkie talkies, synths, pedals) and Pettit's shimmering guitar and voice. The pair seek a harmonious friction by rubbing hazy dreampop overtones against woozy drones and l evitating, dynamic vocals, all providing a haunting soundtrack to their gritty picturebook storytelling.

These songs are a collection of recordings, made over the last year of the band's travels in 2014/15.
