Skegss have quickly become the leading act in the Australian surf rock scene. The trio from the coastal town hailing from Byron Bay, New South Wales have been relaxing audiences with their laid-back beach rock. There are few bands better at reminding audiences of kicking back on the beach on a summer's day. Skegss formed in 2013 as a quartet made up of Ben Reed on lead vocals and guitar, Toby Cregan on bass, Noa Deane on guitar, and Jonny Lani on drums. The band released their first single 'L.S.D.' in July 2014 and began touring in Sydney and wider Queensland. They also released a second single, 'Rock N Roll Radio', in October 2014 before Deane left the band in April 2015 to focus on his surfing career. Skegss didn't lose out by continuing as a trio, as they issued a self-titled EP in April 2015 and were quickly snapped up by Brisbane surf label Ratbag Records. Over the next few years they slowly built their following, releasing three EPs via Ratbag: 50 Pushups For A Dollar, Everyone Is Good At Something (2016) and Holiday Food (2017). Attracting critical acclaim for their sunny hooks and infectious optimism, Skegss finally released their debut album My Own Mess in September 2018, which peaked at No. 2 in the Australian albums chart. With Skegss' music capturing the joys and troubles of being young, it's no surprise to see their appeal to aimless and confused 20-somethings everywhere. Make sure to ride on Skegss' wave while you can.
