Music video by The Stranglers performing Skin Deep.



Skin Deep is a song by British band The Stranglers, released in October 1984 as the lead single from the album Aural Sculpture.

The shimmering and melodic single restored the band to the UK Top 20 after its previous two single releases (from the album Feline) had stalled at #48 and #35.

"Skin Deep" narrowly missed the Top 10 in Australia and Ireland, peaking at #11 in both countries.


Aural Sculpture is the eighth album recorded by The Stranglers. It was also the name given to a one-sided 7-inch single given free with a limited number of copies of their Feline album in 1983. The "Aural Sculpture Manifesto" on the 7" single was played before The Stranglers appeared on stage during concerts during both the 1983 "Feline" Tour and the 1985 "Aural Sculpture" Tour.

The album featured acoustic guitar as well as a three-piece horn section (trumpet, trombone and saxophone).

Aural Sculpture reached number 14 in the UK Albums Chart in November 1984. There were three singles released from the album: "Skin Deep" (No. 15 in the UK Singles Chart), "No Mercy" (No. 37 in the UK Singles Chart) and "Let Me Down Easy" (No. 48 in the UK Chart). All were accompanied by 12" single versions, while "No Mercy" had a further two format releases in picture disc and EP.
