I knew that Skeleton Beach and Jonwayne Spacey were working on a collaboration, but logging into social media yesterday and seeing the first single was out came as a very pleasant surprise! Allergic to Youth is a slow burn with an almost delicate lilt to it, like a recently unearthed slice of sadness from the new romantic era of the 1980s. Spacey’s vocals portray real feeling, as opposed to just being there for effect like so many projects these days. Skeleton Beach provides the perfect melancholic canvas for what has to be one of my favorite tracks of the early 2018 music season.
You can better believe that I’ll be staying on top of this project as it unfolds! In fact, I’m going to try my hardest to get them on stage at the 2nd Annual Echosynthetic Fest! In the meantime, enjoy Allergic to Youth!
