Counterpoint Countdown: Beats Antique’s “Skeleton Key”
So I first heard this song at the Festival of Gnarnia when they started their set off with an absolute banger. The track has a live dubstep feel almost like EOTO, but the swirling violins and banjo upstrokes are enough to know Beats Antique hasn’t totally changed their style. In fact, this fits right in with the progression Beats has taken since their inception in 2007. It is out there and has a totally unique sound that no one else really does except for the trio. I was blown away when I first heard it live and I’m happy to say the studio version doesn’t lose anything. Check for yourself!
And in case you’re living under a rock, Beats Antique will be performing at the ever-so-STACKED Counterpoint Festival in Atlanta, Georgia on September 27. Be sure to check out the daily line up below the ill new cut.
