The Band:

"Having fun isn’t hard for the quartet, as evidenced by tracks like “In a Dream,” an instant groover with peaking melodies and a hooky chorus thrown between memorable lines like “you fucked with the sunshine / you left it in the water." rendering it almost unbearably danceable."--Paste Magazine "Best of What's Next"

"An amazing up and coming band that will get stuck in your head in no time. Skybox will blow you away."--BPM Magazine

" Lollapalooza did well in choosing these stellar locals to represent the Chicago scene. Tight yet listener-friendly, energetic yet totally professional, the quartet of cabaret-electro rockers took every minute of their first Lolla outing and proved they deserve to be here. Skybox already showed their chops back when their “Arco Iris” debuted a few years ago. With the release of “Morning After Cuts” and the danceable single “In a Dream” this year, it's clear this band is a force. Be proud, Chicago." --Metromix

"Who isn’t a fan of some old-school Sci-Fi footage, chicken suits, Humpty-Dumpty and a giant drag queen?"--Donewaiting

"On Morning After Cuts, Skybox busts out hard hitting keys, infectious guitar licks and a sprinkling of bouncy harmonies to provide a 31 minute excursion to the land of whimsical-I’msmilingallofasudden-andnowI’mdancing pop music.  The end result definitely sounds a little like Of Montreal meets Passion Pit "--Audio Muffin

"Skybox adds just the right amount of quirk to pop music. Their live shows are theatric, unexpected and not to be missed. They take a page from such artists as of Montreal and David Bowie in that respect, and in writing songs that can differ widely, but still hold up on their own minus the pomp and circumstance." --Gapers Block

"Perhaps best described as rock'n'roll for the A.D.D. set, Skybox packs an immeasurable amount of energy and musicianship into its short, wily tracks. The Chicago-by-way-of-Phoenix quintet—fronted by 23 year old Tim Ellis—self-released it's first album “Arco Iris” last year. The fast-paced set weaves dark lyrical nuances through its mostly bouncy songs: check the weird pop of “Don't Get Spin Spin” or the tinkling piano keys of “Various Kitchen Utensils.” One moment Skybox's music calls to mind neo-folkie Devendra Bahhart, while at the next it sounds like the atmospheric rock of Muse.” Billboard Magazine

"This is only my second time having the pleasure of catching Skybox, but both performances have left me with the feeling that this band is carving a place uniquely their own. The whole band seems so self assured in their path musically that it radiates live. They bring some serious confidence to the stage that is equaled, if not surpassed, by their ability to perform. While the band may not be completely above comparison it would be difficult to stick them with a single label. They are able to blend so many musical elements well, it begins to feel distinctly their own. Highly Recommended."Radio Free Chicago

"But it was Skybox that impressed us most of all, early in the eve at West Village basement R&R, so please -- somebody sign them. Best described as "ADD rock," the band was wily, tight and funner than an open bar on the moon. That's right, we said funner." Billboard Magazine, CMJ Review on their Jaded Insider blog.

One of the best albums Ive heard this year is Arco Iris by this obscure quintet which relocated to Chicago a bit over a month ago. Aside from having some of the best cover art Ive seen in a while, the album is interesting from post to wire, a wildly diverse journey through musical styles.--Chicago Innerview Magazine

an album of incredibly rich profundity and beautyA live Skybox show is nothing short of an event: scented themes, pirates and cupcakes. Perhaps whoever coined the New American Weird moniker was listening to Skybox; if not, they will be. --The Phoenix New Times.

Check this band out, they could be your next favorite band.--Leakmob

Tim Ellis' lead vocals and active stage persona was thoroughly entertaining and engaging. He touched on vocal notes that call to mind Devendra Banhart and Julian Casablancas, especially on Various Kitchen Utensils, a hodge podge of Tom Waits piano tickled to life by Christian Fields, and sprinkled with wooden box beats and other burlesque textures by Anthony Hornyak.--Radio Free Chicago
