The Austin 100: GIRL SKIN

Mar 17, 2020

Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

Genre: Folk

Why We're Excited: GIRL SKIN's gentle folk songs benefit enormously from their soft chamber-pop bent, which helps an ambitious, sweeping quality to Sid Simons' softly contemplative lyrics. In "Forever & Always," the strings are truly transporting: They take an otherwise lovely ode to romantic devotion and elevate it to something grandly, elegantly dramatic.
