The band’s name began as an acronym, formed by the first letters of our member’s names at that time. Since then, inevitably, some members left and other came, but in the meanwhile we decided to keep the name. Actually, the word “skag” is slang for recreational drugs, and such we consider our music, intense and highly addictive.
We all share the love of music, however each one of us has his/her own personal taste. There are some obvious influences in our sound but also quite a few background inspirations. You can see much of Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Porcupine Tree in our compositions, as well as Depeche Mode, Archive, The Gathering, etc. All these influences combined, they create a unique mix of guitar and synth sounds, which are joined by solid drum and bass lines and embraced with ethereal vocals- something apparent in the bands mentioned above.
