With swaggering indie anthems such as ‘Iconic’ and ‘Put Me Down As A Maybe’ plus huge reactions when supporting Kasabian and The Streets, The Skinner Brothers spent 2021 establishing themselves as an essential new hope for British rock ‘n’ roll. Highlighted at #5 in The Sun’s Artists to Watch in 2022, the band capitalise on their rising status with the release of their new album ‘Soul Boy II’.

In this interview, Zac talks about making the album, stories behind the songs, his love for the American rock band Kiss, and more.
