Skin Lies

A Sheerly Prime Debut

The debut EP from dark soul duo Sheers is a beautifully ideal soundtrack for lamenting creativity and moments of vivid self reflection.

We premiered the first track from Lily Breshears and Grant Pierce, the brains behind the project, back in early August. "Depth" presented orchestral r&b, jazz and hip hop elements as a tease into the EP's other three tracks, reaffirming Breshears' actual depth as an emotional intellect, classically trained musician and the project's driving force.

Piano riffs and paced drumming start out the EP on "In Case," as Breshears' deep croon swiftly establishes itself as a partaking instrument. At times her voice barrels with full-toned body and when accompanied by Pierce's cymbal play and gradual beat buildup (also heard on closing track "Kristoffer"), create heavy texture with only few tools.

Sheers will be joining Skin Lies as supporting acts for Seattle musician Benoît Pioulard's album release show this Tuesday at Holocene. Until then, get acquainted with Sheers below.
