Written in the late twenty-tens, Contemporary Heart is an album musing on a world rapidly entering an age of post-truth and a society settling in the comfortable discomfort of their respective bubbles. An age old organ trying to navigate the currents of our technologies and realities spinning in ever faster evolutionary circles, while itself being restricted to patterns developed thousands, if not millions of years ago.From the dark pulsating opener “April Dusk”, through to the quirky lo-fi ballad that ends the album and gave it its title, “Contemporary Heart” is playing with genres and perspective, accommodating the existential jangle-pop of “What I Know That Kills” as well as the charged pathos of “The Talented Miss K”. The nostalgic pop tune and centerpiece of the album “Stranger to a Stranger” is looking through binoculars in reverse, somehow representing the albums focus on looking from the outside through the inside out to see what we can make of what is reflecting back at us from the mirror cabinet. The garage post-rock of “My Crew”, a satirical look at the twirling phenomenon of internet rage, paralleling the dry, melodic indie-rock of “Aisles” , “Contemporary Hearts” 10 songs all working to question the inner workings of the world we live in and how we are intertwined in it.
Berlin based Skeleton Skies are settling for a dry, playfull and percussive alt-pop sound, blending new romantics and post-punk, coining their style of music exuberantly, melancholic indie-pop.
