POWER OF POP MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW: SOME KIND OF ILLNESS – S/T

ALBUM REVIEW: SOME KIND OF ILLNESS – S/T

SKOI

It has taken a while for Some Kind of Illness to release their debut full length album but it’s definitely worth the wait! Consisting of brothers Mark and Paul Hinks, SKOI encapsulates a myriad of genres that have captured the lovers of indie-alternative rock for decades.

Whether it be psychedelic folk or dream pop or classic 60s/70s British folk (think: Nick Drake, Fairport Convention), the brothers deliver their atmospheric guitar-based music with some aplomb. Even though there are no drums whatsoever, that artistic decision never gets in the way of enjoying these wondrous meditative slices of heaven.

The perfect example of what can be done when artists free themselves from the need to be commercial and allow their creative impulses free rein.
