Skinny Pelembe is back with “No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish”, a standout, melodic return which binds an airy, engrossing texture with chanted lyrics and a taut guitar line. It was a period a few years back, where he repeatedly experienced xenophobia and racism, which planted the seed for the song. He returned to it last year, adding field recordings, and a synth line that nods to a West London broken beat bounce.

The single follows the ‘Sleep More, Make More Friends’ EP released at the end of last year. Since releasing his debut single in 2017, Skinny has been tipped by The Observer, The Quietus and Huck. Singles “I Just Wanna Be Your Prisoner” and “Spit / Swallow” were both picked for BBC 6 Music’s A-List. He’s guested with Lauren Laverne, Mary Ann Hobbes and Tom Ravenscroft on 6 Music, with Jamz Supernova on BBC 1xtra, and recorded live sessions for The Vinyl Factory and Worldwide FM. He sold out a headline UK tour last year, was booked for 6 Music’s 2018 showcase at The Great Escape, and has supported Nightmares on Wax and Maribou State.
