Sky Picnic is a psychedelic rock band from Brooklyn, New York. Consisting of Chris Sherman (guitar/vocals), Leah Cinnamon (bass/vocals) and Pete Meriwether (drums), their debut record was released in 2011 on Nasoni Records. Sky Picnic became part of the Fruits De Mer Records family soon after this, most notably contributing a track to "Sorrow's Children", which was produced in collaboration with psych-rock legends the Pretty Things.
"Paint Me A Dream", Sky Picnic's second full length album, was released in November of 2012, again via Nasoni Records, and features marked growth via a newly expanded sonic palette (most prominent on single "Rippled"). The LP was received incredibly well, being included in several "Best Albums of 2012" lists, among other accolades. On the heels of this success, the band partnered with Red Bull's Sound Select program, leading to some higher profile showcases and festivals, most notably the 2013 Firefly Festival in Dover, DE. Sky Picnic also participated in Fruits de Mer Records Crabstock festivals, playing at both shows on the US leg.
Never ones to rest on their laurels, Sky Picnic has begun to introduce elements that blur musical genres, specifically songs tinged with jazz grooves, sing-along psych-pop and heavier riffs that only hint at what the future holds. The band has signed with Mega Dodo Records (UK) for the release of the "Her Dawn Wardrobe" LP, due out September 2014. Yet this is still only the beginning; the band is looking to garner even more attention in order to bring their unique brand of psychedelia to the masses and will not rest until you are caught in their web of sounds.
Sky Picnic: a cornucopia of '60s fueled psychedelia fattened up for the modern age; pure psychedelic bliss.
