Manhattan is already attracting glowing headline in advance of its release:
"Hubbard provides layered guitar chords that are more waves of sound than riffs, adding to the feeling of isolation. Meanwhile, Cummings' detached voice adds another element of frost, further referencing the band's post-punk influences." -RollingStone.Com
"The mod-rockers combine The Strokes ragged melodies, hints of 2tone's checkerboard tempo swings and Britpop's hooligan smirk, plus new Wave's baritone strut and hardcore 's sprint; the result reverberates with unbridled energy." - Electronic Musician Magazine
"A band with the garage revivalist instincts and lo-fi cool to finally bring guitars back into fashion." --NME (UK)
SKATERS have recently shot a video for the song "Miss Teen Massachusetts." Click here to view and post.
