There's a difficult to describe yet timeless quality to certain songs that transcends genre or era. It's something that you can't fake or contrive and it's what lies at the core of Skating Polly's music. Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse originally formed the band in Oklahoma in 2009 when Mayo's father began dating Bighorse's mother and the duo started writing music together on instruments they inherited from their parents. They recorded their debut album Taking Over The World in 2010 and instantly achieved acclaim from underground music icons like X's Exene Cervenka (who produced 2013's Lost Wonderfuls) and Beat Happening's Calvin Johnson (who produced 2014's Fuzz Steliacoom). After the release of 2016's The Big Fit, the group realized another one of their musical dreams when Veruca Salt's co-frontwomen Louise Post
and Nina Gordon reached out and said they wanted to work with the band, resulting in the release of last year’s critically-acclaimed New Trick EP. Mayo and Bighorse’s brother Kurtis Mayo officially joined the band shortly there-after.
After spending most of 2017 touring North America, the UK, and Europe, the trio entered the studio with producer Brad Wood (Smashing Pumpkins, Liz Phair) to record their forthcoming studio LP - due out later this Spring on El Camino Media.
