It’s time to add SPINN to the long list of the coolest Liverpool bands.
The four-piece, made up of lead singer and guitarist Jonathon Quinn, lead guitarist and keyboard player Andy Power, bassist and backing vocalist Sean McLachlan and drummer George Whitehead, are a dreamy jangle-pop delight. Their newest single ‘Home’ floats by, transporting the listener to a haze. Recorded at the iconic Parr Street Studios, ‘Home’ simultaneously accompanies and stands apart from the sound Liverpool hails as its own. In short, SPINN are ones to watch.
There’s a lovely nostalgia in the song, intended or not; above the dreamy music is the declaration, “Let me stay here with you, / ‘Cos it’s all I wanna do”. The guitars’ psychedelic reverb elevates the unrelenting drums, taking this dreamy sub-genre of indie-pop and running wild. Quinn’s vocals are smooth, with the stand-out part of the track being the lovely ‘oooh oooh’s sprinkled throughout. SPINN have created an uplifting song, reminding us all that the sun will return soon.
As Quinn said, ‘Home’ is “just meant to be something that’s good on the ears”. That it is, indeed.
