The Skys Deliver Progressive Rock At Its Finest On ‘Automatic Minds’
The Skys have been impressing fans and critics alike for over 20 years now and they aren’t done yet. With their 2019 release, Automatic Minds, the Lithuanian rockers upped the ante and brought it big time with a heavy dose of talent behind the scenes including a Grammy winner.
When it came time to record Automatic Minds The Skys knew they had to bring it as listeners have come to expect a level of excellence from the band. After 2015’s Journey Through The Skies, fans were left wanting nothing but more of their signature progressive rock sound. Four years later they delivered as they stepped in the studio with Grammy-winning producer Dom Morley, whose resume includes the late, great Amy Winehouse.
On top of having one of the most sought after producers in the game in their corner, The Skys also had a stacked list of talent by their side to record; Snowy White (Pink Floyd, Thin Lizzy), Neil Taylor (Robbie Williams), Justin Klunk (Ariana Grande), Durga McBroom (Pink Floyd), Rob Townsend (St. Hackett), and more.
Featuring stellar singles like “Singing Tree” and “Communication” featuring The Voice semi-finalist India Carney, Automatic Minds raised the bar within the rock scene, taking things to levels their peers have yet to reach. Perhaps it was due to being mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studio by the always impeccable Miles Showell. Whatever the reason, Automatic Mind fans have showcased their love by way of not only picking up the music but heading out to see The Skys on tour. They played extensively throughout Summer 2019 and will be back in London on March 2020 for two shows, one being at O2 Academy Sheffield.

Key to the band’s appeal is the male – female vocal interplay, and a musical approach that’s both expansive and ethnic. Nuostabus! (Lithuanian for ‘amazing)”. Review by founder of Kerrang! magazine – Geoff Barton
