"The Skyflakes are often lovingly described as 'cute and bubbly' or 'sweet and sugary.' But I know better. Just listen to their lyrics. Underneath the indie rock swirls and cuddly pop hooks are some mean words about putting bullets into yourself, dropping acid, talking shit about co-workers, and meatheads with body image problems..."
Some folks find it difficult to get past the low-key charm and obsess about the cuteness of THE SKYFLAKES. With four out of five members of the band related to someone else in the band, one recalls the endearingly earnest cinematic or televised portrayals of kids playing rock in more innocent times, minus the horrific outfits the Brady kids were forced into when they were turned into pop stars. Yet, a closer listen or look at the Skyflakes' lyrics provide something more than just endearing cuteness. Musically they are quite tight with well-crafted electro-garage-pop melodies, hooks, and harmonies. The Skyflakes are a Filipino-American indie band based in Northern California.
