UK trip hop trio Morcheeba are always at the top of their game, with genre-refining albums. But in 2014, Skye Edwards and Ross Godfrey were touring without Ross’ brother Paul when they were inspired to bring more live intensity to their music.
Hence, Skye & Ross spun off into a side project, called Skye & Ross, and they are grooving back into our lives with a debut album, SKYE | ROSS, on Sept. 2. As Ross said, “What Skye and I do naturally when you ask us to make music together, and yet not necessarily a continuation of what we’d been doing with Morcheeba. It therefore felt only right to give it a new identity.”
You can hear for yourself! Listen to the official audio of first single “Light of Gold” from Skye and Ross on YouTube:
