Skinny Living are set to release their new single 'Only I' this Friday August 26 via the band's own label Orange Room Records.
The track is taken from the Wakefield based band's debut EP, III, also out this Friday.
The track reflects on a time when vocalist Ryan Johnston found himself in a tricky situation with some local hard men and someone placed a gun in front of him and said, "This is how you sort this." "I thought, 'I am not that person,'" he remembers. "It was a major wake up call, but the song's about how easy it is for any of us to go down that rabbit hole, and find ourselves in these sort of situations."
You can listen to 'Only I' below:
