Karma Skies hit the road with debut single
Having always wanted to be on stage and perform individually, Karma Skies, a band which was formed at St Aloysius College, last week released their first original song before embarking on local gig venues.
The single, entitled Bittersweet September, features original material all written and performed by the six girls.
The release marks the culmination of months of work.
Karma Skies began life two years ago as a band taking part in St Aloysius College Soirée.
“Moving on from friendships and getting down to business, we soon realised that we did not only have one lead vocalist, but four vocalists with two musicians,” they say.
“After a number of performances, we started working on a cover version of Fun’s Some Nights at Blacklights studios and also ended up shooting our first music video with Stephan Zammit from Neuronfx in the midst of our A levels. This cover landed us more than 15,000 views to date and many opportunities, including an opportunity to work with Kevin Paul Calleja at Railway studios on another song from Fun, this time We Are Young, which will be coming out soon.
“The positive feedback we got from our first and only music video, has really encouraged us to pull our socks up and work. After Some Nights we also had some gigs and even went to Clint on One where we gave our rendition to three different songs,” they add.
In summer the girls decided to put their heads together and somewhere in between their gossip, chatter and food ‘breaks’ during rehearsals managed to come up with Bittersweet September, their first original song.
And October is already packed with radio and TV shows featuring Karma Skies. They are also participating in this year's edition of Stummin’ concert at Sir Temi Zammit Hall, University of Malta, on October 11 and 12.
