Over the past few years, The Skints have been exploding every cliché in modern reggae en route to becoming the fastest rising band in the UK scene. Coming out of East London, the close-knit group features three different vocalists, tight harmonies, superb musicianship, punk ethos, pop hooks, and massive energy, with a live show that has quickly made them a major festival draw in the UK and Europe. FM is a concept album that tracks one day at the fictional pirate radio station 103. Skints. With radio station/DJ interludes, and a broad range of styles in the songs, including retro-dancehall, girl-group rock steady, Motown-ska hybrids, and classic roots reggae, The Skints pay homage to the Pirate Radio culture that has helped keep reggae alive for years in the UK. The record even features an amazing, off the wall version of “My War,” by hardcore icons Black Flag. Produced by Prince Fatty with the band, the record features guest appearances by Tippa Irie, Horseman, and Rival.
