SPINN have just completed a headline tour that has seen them sell out dates from their own hometown of Liverpool to London’s Thousand Island, where I was lucky enough to catch them live along with High Wycombe’s Only Sun and Lauran Hibberd from the Isle of Wight on a top night of new music pulled together by CloseUp Promotions.
The night ended with ever engaging frontman Jonny Quinn heading skywards as he crowd surfed held aloft by a young and very enthusiastic audience. And skywards is a fairly apt description of the band’s trajectory with the gigs getting bigger and their tracks hitting ever more plays online.
Their new single Boredom describes a life they’d like to leave behind, inspired as it was by a cold and wet work shift by Jonny and Sean from the band at Everton FC’s training ground. With its jangly guitars and upbeat rhythm, the track takes you through to a warmer better place. And if SPINN keep delivering the goods like this they’re set to trade the carparks for a better place too.
