Past Funkdub guests, The Skints’ new album, Swimming Lessons, is out now and draws on influences as sprawling as Bad Brains, Michael Prophet, No Doubt, Alton Ellis, Wiley, and Weezer. The album gets into crushing heartbreak, the impending doom of Brexit, surviving as an independent musician and navigating the weird world of 2019.

This is the second album the band has released with Easy Star (they started life on on Do The Dog in the UK) and follows a cycle of extensive touring in America that helped establish the band on this side of the Atlantic as one of the most beloved underground groups in the scene, primed to break through to greater stardom.
