Skittish "The Five Stages" EP

Based on the psychological concept of the 5 Stages of Grief that people go through when experiencing massive changes in their lives, each song represents a different stage, a different voice, the different personalities we all have when the flood of chemicals in our brain tilt us one way or another. Entirely written and recorded by Noller, it dances the listener from denial to acceptance in 25 minutes.          

The sound of the album seems to conjure Trent Reznor and Conor Oberst meeting in a support group, building a time machine, and heading back to the dawn of the Industrial Revolution to make a record in an old factory. 

This sound has been cultivated over the 8 years of Skittish, and can most easily be described as ‘folk-rock… with thorns.’ “The Five Stages EP” is the critically lauded next step for Skittish. Newly signed with Spectra Records, Noller has gathered another gaggle of the best and brightest musicians Minnesota has to offer, ready to bring “The Five Stages EP” to life; and Skittish out of the dark basement. The gut busting rhythm section and confessional lyrics will be there as well.

The new EP is available now on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and major retail outlets such as Best Buy, FYE, Target and more. For more information, please contact: info@spectramusicgroup.com
