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 & massive energy. 'FM' (Their first release with Easy Star Records), is a concept album that tracks one day at the fictional pirate radio station 103.Skints. With radio station/DJ interludes & a broad range of styles in the songs, including retro-dancehall (“This Town”), girl-group rocksteady (“Come To You”), Motown-ska hybrids (“Friends & Business”) & classic roots reggae (“In The Night,” “The Forest For The Trees”), 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.
