Nylon Sky are a band from my local area who I have seen at a number of venues. Over the years they are gathering more fans and success with the more songs they create. Quite a controversial band combining hip hop with rock verging on heavy metal, their sound is definitely unique. The lyrics, rather being unimaginative and tasteless like most now a days, use metaphors and deep meaning as way of catharsis for their emotions. I do like this band, when they are not screaming into the mic, which they are doing less of nowadays.
