SKYSCRAPER

http://www.skyscrapermusic.com/

The term ‘skyscraper’ was first used in 1794 as a nautical term to describe a triangular skysail of a ship. Later, in 1826, a high-standing horse was called a skyscraper. The present meaning of a tall building was first recorded in 1880. Sometime later, Skyscraper was formed to fill the void left by the loss of bacon, overstar, and moonshine cowboys. The band Skyscraper will endeavour to challenge the existing definitions of all that we come into contact with. They do so by playing their music. Think Cold Play meets Duran Duran plus Jeff Buckley and creates...this dreamy sounding band... The album: Pilot - the full length released November 2004. (Independent) Recorded at Rupert Sound with Graham Tuson. Drums recorded at Lab Monkey Studios with Graham Tuson and Shawn Cole. Produced by Skyscraper with Graham Tuson. Mixed by Graham Tuson. Mastered by Todd Simko.
