Skelocrats are a lo-fi pop band from Dublin, Ireland. Initially established in 2012 who released their 'greatest hits', The Complete Skelocrats, in December of that year. This brought together their two EPs, Whip Crack Away and Hot Yoga. This well-received album resulted in support slots with Lower Dens, TOPS and The Mantles among others, whereupon the bands members (Padraig Cooney, Bronwyn Murphy White, Mike Stevens and Paddy Hanna) went their separate ways to pursue their various musical projects.
They returned in 2015 with the even more favourably-welcomed Bella Bella album, which was awarded Album of the Week by both The Sunday Times and The Irish Times, while being hailed as "a contender for Irish album of the year" by Totally Dublin and "the very opposite of a difficult second album" by So Cow's Brian Kelly in The Thin Air.
