‘Same Old Line’ is the second single from the upcoming album of LA’s The Spyrals which is set for release via Fuzz Club Records on 30 October.
Taking cues from The Velvet Underground, 13th Floor Elevators and The Stooges by way of Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Muddy Waters, the new album Same Old Line was recorded straight through a Tascam tape machine and you can hear some cool tape hiss and saturation. It features eight songs of raw, back-to-basics rock’n’roll that marries white-knuckle garage-blues, psychedelic repetition and sun-baked alt-country to create, in the words of the band, “something new with an old soul”.
Formed in San Francisco and releasing their debut eponymous LP in 2012 which was followed quickly by Out Of Sight in 2013 and subsequently by the critically acclaimed third album The Curse in 2019. The new LP offers influences from The Stooges, The Stones and classic era Creedence all distilled through a haze of Crazy Horse smoke and mirrors.
‘Same Old Line’ is at heart a garage rock track, but it is laden with psychedelic and blues tendencies that grab your attention. The harmonica brings images of the bayou, but the guitar riffs are all stadium rock. Its the type of track you want to listen to and grab the air guitar.
