Skinny Girl Diet are a three piece garage punk band from London who have recently shot to stardom in the alternative scene with their riff heavy aggressive blend of punk and garage rock.
The band was formed in 2011 in Camden, where they started to dominate the local pub and club scene with their unique and aggressive sound, playing with some of the most exciting new bands to come out of the British scene in recent years. Since their first gig they have become regular headliners at their own gigs around London and Brighton.
This year has been a big one for Skinny Girl Diet, opening for indie legends Primal Scream at the iTunes Festival, as well as this they have released their first 7″ vinyl on HHBTM Records to a very welcoming and positive response. The band have a very unique sound, think of a Kim Gordon on a heavy Sonic Youth track mixed with the aggressive and wonderfully trashy guitars from “Bleach”.
Front-women Delilah Holiday provides hauntingly beautiful vocals which turn to banshee-like screams over messy, distorted guitar, whilst drummer Ursula Holiday and bass player Amelia Cutler provide a brilliantly tight backdrop to the bewitching noise.
Skinny Girl Diet show no signs of slowing down their young, but very impressive career. 2013 has been an incredible year for them and 2014 is gearing up to be even better. There is a lot more to come from these girls in the near future.
