Top Tracks: Some Villains – The Skin

This new track from Somerset alt rockers Some Villains is an absolute beast. The driving drum beat and chugging riffs sound like some unseen creature pursuing you through the undergrowth, culminating in a raw, snarling guitar solo as it surges forth from the darkness and goes in for the kill. Lyrically the new single, taken from their upcoming EP Outliers out 16th March, deals with how something that has been broken can never really be the same again. The wound may heal but the scars remain, though they give us a chance to learn from our mistakes and move forward. We are all broken in some form, but it should never be enough stop you from picking up the pieces and building towards a better future.
