AFFILIATED with alt-rock standard bearers Domino via their Geographic Music imprint, it takes little more than listening to a few seconds of their material to discern why there’s such a groundswell of hype surrounding Spinning Coin.
A by-product of Glasgow’s DIY scene that have deftly climbed out out of its confines and into the hearts of music fans from down south and further afield, the band’s persistence and work ethic has certainly began to pay off over the course of the last year or so.
Presently on their way to SXSW in order to win over even more converts and spread their music as far as possible, the band have followed up the tremendous ‘Raining On Hope Street’ with new B-side ‘Tin.’
A frenetic track that evokes the spirit of The Modern Lovers’ seminal debut, ‘Tin’ is built upon lo-fi textures and irresistibly rugged guitars. With one eye on the slacker rock of days gone by and the other gazing forward towards the clear cut nuances that make their sound such a fresh prospect, ‘Tin’ acts as a prime example of the duality between the band’s inclination towards ornate beauty and the healthy undercurrent of raw aggression that comes to the fore on this outing.
‘Raining On Hope Street’/’Tin’ will be released on the 24th March and is available to pre-order now via Domino. The band will play the inaugural ‘Glasgow Buckaroo Ball’ at SXSW alongside WOMPS, Catholic Action, The Pooches, Happy Meals, Pinact and as yet to be announced special guests on Friday 17th March.
