Bedroom pop project Skateland is the creation of songwriter Dorian Williams II. Earlier this year, KUTX’s February 2023 Artist of the Month released the EP New Wave Revival, as haunted in its melodies and vocals as it is lyrically. It’s not necessarily sadness that dominates the overall arch, but Williams has described creating music as a cathartic experience, which may be why this collection has a touch of melancholy in its beauty. Still, Skateland’s sound is always evolving, and there’s more to come.

Tonight is a special night. On the same night that legendary electronic music wizards Tangerine Dream are gracing Mohawk‘s outdoor stage with composer/multi-instrumentalist Mari Maurice‘s More Eaze opening the show, Skateland brings New Wave Revival and much more to Mohawk’s indoor stage. Doors for Skateland at 8 p.m., and the line-up includes Die Mart, Chicago garage rock duo North By North, and Sweet Regime.

And now the ATX-by-way-of Philly outfit is ramping things up with two new additions to the line-up, guitarists Steve Pike and Kyle Harris. No doubt extra shreds will add even more discordant dimensions […]
