Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye are the double trouble duo that form Jockstrap’s core.
Having met at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the pair decided to put the school’s facilities to good use to create their unique take on leftfield pop. Think bluesy bedroom sounds, bossa nova, strings (even a 21-piece orchestra) and woozy electronic touches.
