Skinny Girl Diet are a 3 piece from south London who look set for a breakthrough year in 2016. The family outfit are made up of Delilah (singer / guitarist) and Ursula Holiday (drums) and their cousin Amelia Cutler (bassist).
They have harnessed a visceral sound with roots in Siouxsie Sioux, Hole and the ‘Riot Grrrl’ scene from the 90s. However, listen to their podcast with Radio X’s John Kennedy and their wit, charm and intelligence give them far more dimensions.
They released the EP ‘Reclaim Yourself’ in October last year to critical acclaim and its not hard to see why. ‘Fix Me’ is an onslaught of grunge and punk rock telling the tale of someone piecing their life back together.
Their punk rock ethics and sound are to be seen in all their glory on the ferocious 'Silver Spoon'. It’s a polemic we have heard before but sadly, in today's society its one that's needed more than ever. Attacking a Tory government maybe easy pickings but offering hope to those who think a dead end job awaits should be lauded.
