Skin Town

Duo, comprised of vocalist Grace Hall and Zola Jesus collaborator Nick Turco, came together late last year. Unabashedly romantic (and delightfully hedonistic), the LA-based outfit's modern R&B may sit alongside nicely with contemporary hitmakers like The-Dream or Mike Will Made It, but they align closer to the freakiness of Ginuwine and Silk juxtaposed against the feather-weight synth trails of new age.

Hall and Turco’s music falls on the right side of sexy.

- No Fear Of Pop

Even with a grindhouse horror movie name, the sound that emerges from Skin Town is un-campy, sexy, and glamorous

- Interview Magazine

Synth-led, melodic and dripping with penetrating pop hooks, The Room manages to sound both warmly familiar and oddly alien

- Dazed and Confused Magazine

Full of biting, sparse synth work and wonderfully restrained vocal lines from Hall, the duo’s debut album ‘The Room’ is a dramatic unveiling reminiscent of Abel Tesfaye’s first mixtape – hardened, glistening R&B that’s been left to soak in the grit of the dance underground.

- Dummy Mag

It’s almost too perfect of a scenario, but it helps that they’re both obviously talented; Turco’s synthscapes are huge and scene-stealing, while Hall’s husky voice strikes a glorious medium between Abel Tesfaye and Sade. Together, they’ve crafted a strong debut album that flirts with the hipster-R&B zeitgeist without giving itself away altogether. 7.4
