SPINN spins us round and round with their surfy jangling indie rock on new single Who You Are, even giving us a taste of angular post-punk on the dreamy glistening gem. We get a whiff of DIIV and Wild Nothing on the bright and buoyant sparkler, whose softly gnarled guitars and elastic drums are accompanied by witty lyrics. 

“Who You Are is a love letter to all the posers of the world,” muses lead singer Jonny, “I think that everyone is a poser in their own way, like it or not at one point or another we’ve all pretended to be something were not.” Identity crises aside, I know myself well enough to know that I really love this new SPINN charmer. The Liverpudlian band is in the midst of a UK tour. They’ll be dropping a new EP on April 6th.

It might not be dark out yet, but I’m more than glad to spin around the room right now to After Dark, the latest from jangle pop and indie rock four piece SPINN. The Liverpudlians lean towards the more heavy and dark versus their usual sun drenched luminosity on the song, but it’s still quite the glistening, swirling indie rock jam and a wonderfully hooking treat, as well as an energetic and spry escapade. SPINN’s frontman Jonny explains that the track is essentially about seeing his friends’ relationships slowly break down. He wrote in a “he said she said” way, since there’s always two sides to a story. The hazy twirling song, rife with luscious riffs and crisp percussion, will be on a forthcoming EP produced by Chris McCory of Catholic Action. The EP arrives this March on Modern Sky UK.

It’s jangle pop galore as Liverpool four piece SPINN return with a sun drenched charmer named Notice Me. We’ve been waiting for the lads to drop a second single since they wooed us earlier this year with debut single Home. I can nearly feel the cool spray of the coast on my face as I submerge myself in Notice Me’s dreamy nostalgic, youthful exuberant surf pop and indie rock. Singer Jonathon Quinn said: “Notice Me started out as a way to get some radio play. We used to say it was a homage to BBC Radio Merseyside because when we wrote it we couldn’t get any radio play, and wanted to be noticed by them. The lyrics are a bit more meaningful, it’s essentially us trying to portray the concept of Hero Worship in a pop song. That’s why we’ve got a load of our gorgeous lovely heroes on the artwork.” Lest you forgot how enthralling Home is, it’s tacked on below.

The four lads that make up Liverpool band SPINN prove themselves dashingly irresistible on their new single Home. The surfy jangle pop meets sparkling dream pop song thaws the frigid cold of winter and lights the path towards spring’s eternal hopefulness. Day Wave’s bittersweet nostalgia meets The 1975′s earlier, more starry eyed indie pop on this endearingly romantic gem. Home will be out as a single come March 3rd.
