The Skygreen Leopards: Gorgeous Johnny

Gorgeous Johnny

The Skygreen Leopards return with Gorgeous Johnny, an album overflowing with ocean-bound storm-washed cars, the buildings of the city, and dimly lit rooms in San Francisco. It’s a sunburnt wasteland, still brimming with the memories of past friendships and old loves.

For Gorgeous Johnny, the Leopards had Jason Quever’s Pan American Studio at their disposal, which has given the production a great degree of clarity, and allowed the boys to augment their acoustic and electric guitars with walls of shimmering organ. This album really is a great place to hang around: more emanates with each listen.

The Skyband are also set for a short tour down the east coast. Dates can be found below.
