Rising Liverpool boyband, SPINN, set for debut Irish show.
SPINN ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM ‘SPINN’ OUT 3rd MAY ON MODERN SKY UK & LIVERPOOL ACADEMY HEADLINE SHOW IN DECEMBER
SPINN spent 2018 selling out their debut UK headline tour, making the first visit to Japan, and clocking up over 3million Spotify plays. If that is the beachhead on the banks of the Mersey, then 2019 is the break out. On 3rd May SPINN release their debut album ‘SPINN’ on Modern Sky UK.
On the closing track of their debut album, SPINN frontman Jonny Quin cuts through the band’s blissfully unifying guitar pop with a grain of arresting truth, “You make me want to scream, you know that? Make me want to kick and scratch your door.”
Restless or fleet of foot? Misty eyed or rattling the gates? Connected or cleaved apart? SPINN are a band at once able to give voice to the frustrations of a generation while providing an exhilarating escape into revelry.
ALBUM PRE-ORDER HERE
This is the sound of young people who want to love, live and re-connect in a world of digital interference, ill feeling, hard words and the toxic stream of misinformation. 11 tracks that pull friends and lovers close in troubling times, while taking a shot at romance and making a bid for indie-disco stardom.
Jonny explains, “The album is about everything from girls and house parties to toxic masculinity, self-perception and self-analysis regarding my relationships with people in my life. It’s a bit of a mixed bag but I like it so there!”
There are moments of both doubt and defiance (Notice Me), disconnection and re-connection (Is There Something That I Missed?), holding on and letting go (July, At A Glance).
Destined to break hearts from Huyton to Brighton, SPINN inherit the fine Mersey tradition of poetic shimmering pop. This gift for marrying the cerebral with the seductively catchy, comes to the fore on Sunshine and Shallow, while the band take on a more buzzing disgruntled form on Green Eyes and Keep Dancing. This is defiant escapism, a mass breakout of youthful hope in the melancholy tones and tradition of true northern guitar pop.
Dates this month in London (Camden Assembly, 21st February) and Liverpool (Arts Club Theatre 22nd February – SOLD OUT) will showcase tracks from the forthcoming album, followed by just announced dates in Spain and France in April, Sound City and a headline UK wide tour in May, and a hot off the press headline show at Liverpool Academy 1 in December, which is on sale now.
