about

Skemer is a brand new cooperation between top model and singer Kim Peers (Vogue, Steven Meisel, Prada, Dave Clarke, … ) and guitarist Mathieu Vandekerckhove (Amenra, Syndrome)
Two very different worlds collide and lead to minimalist dark wave deconstructions that are equal parts brutal and erotic.
This duality is reflected in the name Skemer, which next to its obvious English meaning of 'intriguer' also stands for ‘dusk’ in Mathieu’s native tongue West-Flemish, as well as in their debut album.
Recorded just a few months after meeting, a sense of urgency shines through in the tracks that build Benevolence. The winding sensuality of Sunseeker juxtaposed with the pounding harshness of Best, the faint twirl of Call Me versus the solemn gait of Heartbreak.
Just like with their effervescent live performances where Peers seductive vocals coalesce with Vandekerckhove's austere beats to meld into a transcendent fury. Everything has a double nature in the hands of Skemer.
