Track Of The Day – Sky Between Leaves – ‘O.B.E.’


Sky Between Leaves are based in London and evolved from the  bedroom recordings of former Drugstore guitarist Tito. They describe their music as alt-rock/Krautronica and take their collective name from Jarvis Cocker’s description upon receiving his first pair of spectacles.  Our angular, myopic velvet voiced hero finally realised that what he had previously taken for holes in the trees were in fact the “sky between the leaves”.

The bands latest track “O.B.E.”  is a gorgeous swirling otherworldly mind-trip, hypnotic, euphoric and quite fucking beautiful.

And as it’s Friday, here’s a Friday freebie, the bands self titled début single. Can you guess what it’s called Wink

  1. OBE doesn't work. Tried the play button many times. Tried the other one, played 1st click. P.S. Any chance of ever getting a volume control along with these, it can be kinda annoying to have 'em just start blasting out on full?

    • Well it has 162 plays so I'd suggest it does. I'd furthermore suggest using the volume control on your PC before clicking on play.

      I have no control over soundcloud or how it chooses to embed.

      You can of course hover on the player were it says soundcloud (bottom right of player) this gives the option to listen within soundcloud's page which has a universal volume control – top right of page.
