Australia’s Skegss released their grungy, breezy new single “Fantasising,” produced by Catherine Marks (Manchester Orchestra, PJ Harvey, The Killers), alongside a video directed by Kai Neville. After recent appearances at Lollapalooza’s ‘Lolla 2020 Virtual Festival’ and their own ‘Under The Thunder Black Tie World Tour’ livestream, the “Fantasising” video finds the rising rock trio now playing an intimate dive bar run amok with alpacas, snakes, goats, and dogs. Singer/guitarist Ben Reed, joined by bassist Toby Cregan and drummer Jonny Lani, together craft an electrifying track filled with escapist charm (“When I’m occupied I don’t have to think to breathe / As long as I’m making better memories / Cos these things last as far as I can see”). “Fantasising” is out now via Loma Vista Recordings and follows their June single “Under the Under.”

“The Aussie pub, a quintessential drinking hole. Furnished with every walk of life as you drift further off the beaten track,” explains Neville. “Bands have been burning through Australian pubs since the 1970s. Some gigs better than others. Join SKEGSS for an ice cold schooner as they wander into one of their more baffling gigs. The beer was ice cold, the locals eventually warmed up.”
