Band Of The Day – The Skies We Built…

Oddly enough, I found out about The Skies We Built while looking at the amazing commercial artwork of Nigel Dennis/Electric Heat. Dennis had taken some photos of the band so I quickly looked them up and I am certainly glad I did. The band hails from Chicago and plays indie rock that is impressive in its scope. Three of the songs have vocals and one is a fabulous instrumental. The music has a definite somber post-rock feel but the band picks the tempos up on several occasions which certainly works to their advantage. It seems as though The Skies We Built are much farther along than most bands their age. Let’s hope this is only the beginning. The four songs from the band’s 2006 debut EP are up on their Myspace.
