Skemer is the cooperation between singer Kim Peers and guitarist Mathieu Vandekerckhove formed in 2019. They soon discovered that their individual strengths complemented each other perfectly. 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. The band recorded their debut album just months after meeting and this sense of urgency shines through in their effervescent live performances, where Peers seductive vocals coalesce with Vandekerckhove’s austere beats to meld into a transcendent fury.

Debut album Benevolence was released on the 25th of October 2019 on Avant! Records. In 2022 a remix of the song “Sunseeker” by Dana Montana was released on He.She.They Records.
