Matt Mehlan, core member and co founder retains the bands core ideals of collaboration, experimentation , and unpredictability with his Skeletons project. Beginning in Oberlin, Ohio as a solo project with help from an eclectic cast of collaborators (classically trained trombonists, punk rock drummers, a junkyard boy's choir), Skeletons has now settled comfortably into its adult body, having established the full-time band who mesh impeccable hooks with dark world-beat funk, gorgeous-but-creepy balladeer intonations, and grotesque moments of noise that forge cohesion from discord. Escaping all easy categorizations, the band covers much new ground for genre cross-fertilizing with its singular soul, and serves as an eccentric older brother to the full string sections of its acclaimed predecessor, Life and the Afterbirth. The world of Skeletons and Girl Faced Boys has thus far been an esoteric one, but the brilliance offers a solid and irresistible step forward into new musical realms for G avant-pop .
