Skinny Pelembe is the musical project of South African born, Doncaster based artist Doya Beardmore whose deeply eclectic sounds transport you to another world. With a handful of EPs under his belt in the form of ‘Seven Year Curse’, ‘Spit/Swallow’ and ‘Sleep More, Make More Friends’, the rising newcomer released his awaited debut album ‘Dreaming Is Dead Now’ this past May. Featuring previously released singles ‘No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish’ and ‘Spit / Swallow’, the ten-track project is a dream-like journey which brings together an amalgamation of sounds and influences.
For his COLORS show, Skinny Pelembe brings his soothing tones with a magnificent rendition of standout single ‘I’ll Be On Your Mind’, which is lifted ‘Dreaming Is Dead’. The simple yet steady instrumentation is accompanied by dreamy harmonies, setting the scene for Beardmore’s reverb-heavy and muddy vocals to pierce through. Submerge yourself in the captivating performance of ‘I’ll Be On Your Mind’ above, and be sure to put Skinny Pelembe’s ‘Dreaming Is Dead Now’ on rotation.
