Drawing inspiration from Buddhist teachings and the hopeful attitude of frontman Johnny Quinn, Liverpool-based four-piece SPINN return with second album Outside Of The Blue.
Release Date: 4th February 2022
Label: Modern Sky UK
Format: CD / Vinyl / Digital
Songs about their own personal experiences and concerning life’s worries, mental state, romance and political issues are not new topics for troubadours throughout the music world but the SPINN outlook is given a bright , cheery and poppy music. Twanging, echoing guitars fill every song with a very full sound production from Tom Longworth (Oscar Lang, Spector, Vistas, BLOXX).
Johnny Quinn’s hopeful and positive vista on life is strong throughout, keeping the listening experience bouncy and cheerful. Accompanied by Luke Brickett on guitar, Sean McLachlan on bass and Louis O’Reilly on drums the forthcoming tour will no doubt be a lively experience and a particularly good draw at festival dates. An ideal band to cheer a bouncy festival audience where it will reflect the mood of wanting to make the most of life after deprived of things we love the most.
The Buddhist mantra of “avoid evil, do good and purify the mind” is immersed in the music, with the philosophy of “It’s about how appreciative you become of the good things in life when you realise you have them, and how you’d do anything for that.”
The UK tour in April and May will bring a joyful experience when hopefully the weather will have improved so we can leap along to their feel-good sound.
This track Stargazing tells you all you need to know about the joyful philosophy and sound of SPINN.
