about

'Skinny Downers is at once one of the most engrossing and affective bands I’ve heard in a while'

- The point of everything, July 2012

'It is a fascinating, evocative collection enveloped in terrific darkness – absolute, suffocating, and completely absorbing.'

- Golden Plec, July 2012

'More experimental in nature than his first offering, Into the Void is proof that you don’t need a big chorus, or a four bar hook (as Paul McCartney would have you believe) to write a great song. Placing focus on emotion and conveying that emotion with sound as opposed to melody isn’t as easy at it may seem. From what we’ve heard from Skinny Downers, the proof is in the pudding. O’Sullivan’s solo venture might just be the best thing for him as he seems to have found his stride.'

- We Are Noise, July 2012

Track Name: Breeze
It's a matter of time, before you waste and dry up.
You always define your taste before you decide to pipe up.
No with a breeze, you're waiting, changing how you were stuck
I'll take for granted what you are, I'll be here till I choke.

It's the loss caused by waking up assured of what you are.
It's your lost call to those who ended how you were.

Deliver in time, a part of you is what you own.
Shaking crimes, lost for words, I know.
I'd rather die then to let you know, each part of you is a black hole.
I'd rather die then to let you know, each part of you is a black hole.

It's the loss caused by waking up assured of what you are.
It's your lost call to those who ended how you were.
Track Name: Little Shadow
Shut the door I can't hear those bells ring.
I remember every word.
Your death knell echos quietly through the hallway.

Gone away all that's here is your shadow.

I can't promise I won't sin, I've seen it in the world.
I can chance tomorrow in the daylight.

Gone away all that's here is your shadow
Track Name: Hold Direction
Broadcast to where you,
They say you never would,
But space can't operate,
Inside your endless charms grows a foetus
and we can't understand.

Hold, they hold, they hold direction.

Same stance taken, I know we're disembodied here.
Poor choices made them, I know, it's been a bad year.
Time to grow, fall apart. we left in traces, I know.
I forget it's name.

Hold, they hold, they hold direction.
Track Name: This Bet is Long Term
We passed away.
It's on your mind.
It's here to stay.
Not far behind.
How can they see if you lock the door?

I should say, this bet is long term.

It's fading grey.
Between the tides.
No more to say.
What's on your mind?
How can they see who came here before?

I should say, this bet is long term.
