Ever since we launched Art Will Fall, Liverpool dream-pop rockers SPINN have been firmly fixed on our radar. Their latest single It’s Not Getting Better is one of their best yet and shows us a new side to their sparkling jangle-pop.
SPINN are a band that want to bring people closer together and reconnect in the digital age. It’s Not Getting Better is a track that’s full of youthful hope and wisdom. Coupled with a huge atmospheric sound and warming backing vocals that are drenched in reverb, it’s definitely a contrast to the their previous work that will propel them even further.
“I went a bit Father John Misty when I wrote the lyrics to this song” explains frontman Jonny “It’s like my lament on the state of everything going on at the moment, the world’s a bit of a mess what can I say? I wanted this track to play the role as both a loose social commentary and a contemporary pop song, I think it kind of works. People don’t view us as a political band, but we still have stuff we want to say.”
It’s already been a fantastic year for these four northerners. They’ve gained millions of streams on Spotify, received plenty of praise from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and are currently on the road for the festival season. SPINN will also be embarking on a UK wide headline tour in September and we can’t wait to catch them live.
