GIRL SKIN band photo by Joe Miller - september 2018.jpg


GIRL SKIN are a Brooklyn based collective, led by singer/songwriter Sid Simons. They combine aspects of fragile folk and delicate art rock to create ethereal chamber pop songs that are unafraid to wear their vulnerable hearts on their sleeve. The songs are shaped by Sid’s experiences, taking in his journey from birth in Portland, OR, to his childhood in both Australia and then New York, teenage years in Shanghai, China and a rambling road trip he took around the U.S.A. instead of finishing High School.

The group expands and contracts as the music and projects seem fit but contributing musicians include Bailey Blu (drums/piano/vocals), Sophie Cozine (vocals), Al Nardo (bass), Stan Simons (vocals) and Ruby Wang (violin).

Darling (video)

"The track, an ode to Simons’ muse and collaborator Foster James, blends a warm array of jangle-pop, folk and art rock as the undeniable expression of love is brought to life in aural technicolor.”

You’re A Freak (single)

“It’s truly a fine day when we get to share some great music coming out of Brooklyn with the premiere of “You’re A Freak” by GIRL SKIN.”

Bite Real Hard - Video

The one shot music video has premiered in EARMILK

“Bite Real Hard” feels like one of those tracks that would be taken straight out of Cameron Crowe’s beloved film Almost Famous, alongside acts like Paul Simon, David Bowie, and Elton John.”
