Liverpool band Spinn are having a stellar Year, with the release of their debut EP and playing a number of sold out shows, the band are proving they have so much talent to offer.
A week or so ago, the band released their new track ‘Shallow’ and once again they seemed to outdo themselves. Well they’ve went ahead and released a video for the track, and it should make everyone smile.
The video sees the band running down the street collecting flowers off strangers, a simple idea, but it has some really cool camera work. I’m surprised at how long the band all lasted running down this street, if it was me it would have been a much shorter video.
‘Shallow’ is easily one of my favourite tracks so far this year, and Spinn are becoming one of my favourite bands I’ve discovered in 2018. The band always seem to be active playing shows, releasing exclusives, constantly on social media and delivering good music consistently. All of these things are integral to a band – you have to be persistent and be constantly active, especially in the early years. This is why Spinn are doing so well, which is great because we’re getting excellent music out of it!
Liverpool Band Spinn Release their Jangly Dream Pop Debut EP
Just finishing listening to ‘After Dark’ earlier in the year it was quite clear that Liverpool band Spinn had a lot to offer. Since then it’s been a short wait for the band to release the EP, and it’s so good to have it in the Worlds arms.
The EP from top to bottom is coated with twinkling guitars, similar to ones that could be heard on a Mac Demarco record. But the sleek vocals that lay over the instrumentals couldn’t be any further from Mac Demarco, as that endearing scouse twang gives a subtle attitude to the tracks. From the start you’re given the fast paced dancer ‘She Takes Her Time’ which is a joy to listen to, especially with that arcade sounding solo.
You then have the two tracks that were released this year ‘After Dark’ and ‘Who You Are’, both of which could contest to be song of the EP. Their jangly dream pop warps all around the room giving off cool breeze that only a sweet guitar riff could. ‘After Dark’ has this brooding composure about it with it’s deep riff, while ‘Who You Are’ carries a in-your-face attitude fronted by the lines:
“Don’t you tell me/how you’re so oh so/oh so very different to anyone else/I See through you”
The final track ‘November‘ is Synth heavy and once again is armed with that deep and dark guitar riff. However the song comes bursting to colour when it breaks down, which is bliss to listen to.
Spinn have a special air around them which gives them that slightly larger than life feel. The guys can be very proud of this EP, and I’m looking forward to them taking it out on the road, if you’re around one of their shows make sure you get yourself down there.
