Dublin alt-rockers Spies have followed up last years much admired Moosehead single with a new forthcoming EP, titled Sea Creature. Ahead of its release the band are streaming the EP’s title track.
The track opens with these stark sounding guitars and pianos over a shuffling drum line. There’s something slightly dark and brooding about the band, Michael Broderick’s aching vocal line dominating, emotive and powerful like an off the leash Morrissey fronting Editors. There’s this twisting spine-chilling guitar line that rakes over the solid ground and manages to muster a good amount of angst from the track, before things settle and end.
Its quite an introduction.
