The thing that struck me was the name. Skattish. That’s a catchy one. As you might expect from the name, Skattish play ska music, with a little twist, they also use bagpipes. From what little I know of ska music, one thing is for certain, they have a horn section. Out of the four tracks on this demo, Skattish use a bagpipe and brass on two of ’em. It’s a cool sound that from what I know has never been used before, and for that I give ’em a nod. They will have a full album out soon. Let’s hope they stick with the pipes.
