‘Skyscrapers’ are reaching for the sky!

At the age of 14, I was more concerned about what to wear to school on “civvies day” and which boy I liked at the time, but these youngsters are dominating the South African music scene.

The band consists of singer/songwriter Mila Smith (13), keyboardist Leo Letschert (12) and drummer Dan Buchalter (12).  The trio met at school and formed the band in 2015.

The Cape Town-based artists play infectious pop with soul influences – from the hopeful ballad ‘There’s A Light’ to the smooth-sounding, harder-hitting ‘Politicians’.

They also constantly experiment with different music styles: from hip-hop to drum ‘n bass. Mila’s voice is mature and has a distractive sound and feel and the boys add a beautiful indie rhythm to enhance this band’s musical impact.

I think that ‘Skyscrapers’ is definitely a band to watch out for in 2018 and if you don’t believe me watch their recent video below.
