Extensive European tour for Skating Polly right around the corner


The multi instrumentalist duo of Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse started Skating Polly band in Oklahoma in 2009. They recorded their debut album Taking Over The World in 2010 when they were respectively 9 and 14 years old. Achieving instant acclaim from underground music icons like X's Exene Cervenka (who produced 2013's Lost Wonderfuls) and Beat Happening's Calvin Johnson (who produced 2014's Fuzz Steliacoom). After the release of 2016's The Big Fit, Veruca Salt's co-frontwomen Louise Post and Nina Gordon reached out and said they wanted to write with the band. This resulted into more musical offerings and in this time the band added a third member - Kelli's brother Kurtis Mayo.

Skating Polly are one of those bands that are really needed to be seen in a club to fully grasp what makes them so special. “It can get pretty chaotic when we're playing. People have said it feels like it could fall apart at any moment but in a good way,” Bighorse says with a laugh. “We try to make our music honest and engaging and I think that's what drew us to people like Nina and Louise or Exene; you can probably guess a lot of the acts that we love, but we’re able to keep making music that always sounds like us,” Mayo explains. “We really try to make the songs the focus instead of trying to flaunt technical musical abilities,” adds Bighorse – and that honesty and optimism is why everyone from legendary musical figures as well as hardcore fans have gravitated toward Skating Polly's music.

After a successful Europe tour early last year the band is back on European soil for a extensive tour!
