The Austin 100: GIRL SKIN

GIRL SKIN.
GIRL SKIN.

Hometown:Brooklyn, New York

Genre:Folk

Why We're Excited:GIRL SKIN's gentle folk songs benefit enormously from their soft chamber-pop bent, which helps an ambitious, sweeping quality to Sid Simons' softly contemplative lyrics. In "Forever & Always," the strings are truly transporting: They take an otherwise lovely ode to romantic devotion and elevate it to something grandly, elegantly dramatic.
