Brooklyn-based Skyhill was formed in the winter of 2006, when Dan Avidan and Peter Lennox connected through their love of atmospheric, beat. heavy anthems. Writing and recording throughout 2006 and early 2007, with Dan on vocals and Peter on guitars & keyboards, the band completed what would become their debut album, 'Run With The Hunted' (self-produced), in thespring of 2007. The album's sound -- a meld of downtempo electronica, European house, and alt/indie rock -- reflected the influence of the band's many musical heroes, such as Zero 7,Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, and U2.

Shortly after their tour in support of the album in 2007, Lennox decided to stop making music, as he had lost the drive to. Avidan chose to move on from Skyhill as well, as he believed without Lennox it would not be the same group. Avidan has since been a part of the musical comedy duo Ninja Sex Party.

However, in 2015, Avidan and Lennox reconnected and decided to release a new single, "Firefly," once again under the name Skyhill. They currently have no plans to release a new album, but Avidan has stated that they both hope to make more music down the road if they both find the time to. « hide
