Welsh songwriter Benji Tranter, joined by friends Elizabeth Walsh on bass and vocals, and Adam Fletcher on drum form the promising new outfit, Ski Lift. Recently sharing their latest single Double Yellow the band showcase their scuzzy guitars and lo-fi sound in tantalising detail as sparkling melodies and catchy choruses transcend. Written during the 2021 lockdown, and inspired by Tranter’s daily encounters in his local area of Croydon, ‘Double Yellow’ offers an exciting introduction to the band's sound. Speaking about the track Tranter goes on to say, “During the lockdown of 2021, I explored my local area on foot most days - Broad Green, Waddon Marsh (overshadowed by the giant gasworks which have since been torn down) and Wandle Park. I became familiar with, and fond of, many little details and aspects I hadn't noticed in busier times. I felt strange knowing that when life sped back up, I might not see those places again in the same way.” Take a listen for yourselves below.
