Skaters Biography - Unpretentious Punk-Pop
Singer Michael Ian Cummings, guitarist Joshua Hubbard and drummer Noah Rubin decided to join forces after their previous respective groups began to fizzle out. Having already played in huge indie groups such as Dirty Pretty Things and the Dead Trees, they were able to leverage their contacts and start building a buzz from the off. Wanting to separate themselves from some of the more pretentious groups currently on the alternative scene, this musical trio adopted the term "humblecore" to describe their straightforward, punk pop sound. Influenced by '70s punks such as The Ramones, their 2012 debut EP Schemers also hints at The Clash, with Cummings' vocals uncannily reminiscent of Buzzcocks' Pete Shelley. Their individual sound and retro inspiration have seen the group become quick live favourites both here and across the Atlantic - their chaotic live sets and energetic sound make for a winning combination.
