Describing themselves as avant pop, San Francisco’s New Spell have recently released their first single, Watching Waiting, taken from their upcoming 5 song EP, Songs we wrote for thee. Fusing together elements of jazz, indie, and electronic influences they blend together to make this perfect pop music.
Watching Waiting is a prime example. Starting with this stark piano, it rolls over and allows the bands singer and songwriter Leanne Kelly’s warm vocal come to the fore. From there it gently twists and turns, pulling at your expectations, but never being anything other than this supremely melodic and loveable brand of, well, avant pop I suppose.
New Spell definitely know what they’re talking about. And doing.
