More From Skeleton Dead

The Skeleton Dead have been back in touch with two more tracks of delicately beautiful acoustic tracks that still reveal some wonderfully dark and sinister undertones.

Lock The Doors is a brilliantly realised tale of the macabre – follow the twists and turns of a murderous burglar told over a sparse backdrop of gentle instrumentation that acts as a wonderful counterbalance to the coiled menace of the lyrics – this gem gives a twisted new take on murder ballads.

By contrast Taken By The Tide is more upbeat, but still remains heartbreakingly fatalistic.

If we’re taken by the tide

I can’t say that I’ll mind.”

Haunting is a much overused term to describe most kind of acoustic folk – not this time. The Skeleton Dead easily exceed all expectations – highly recommended.
