song review under the radar

Spinn mellow down on bittersweet new track ‘Boredom’

Liverpool’s approachable lads and bop connoisseurs are on a roll at the minute.  ‘Shallow’ has gone down a treat, they’ve had a belter UK tour (read our review of the Newcastle date here), culminating in a show at Liverpool’s O2 Academy tomorrow night and what could make it even better? A new single.  ‘Boredom’ is a track the lads have been playing on tour and it’s gotten a great response so far.

Opening on a static effect and launching straight into Johnny Quinn’s warm vocals, ‘Boredom’ doesn’t beat it around the bush.  The riff that leads into the chorus sounds like it could’ve been lifted straight from The Queen is Dead.  A lot of Spinn’s music has this timeless quality in which it takes elements from different decades, some more recent and others going far further into their North West heritage.

Though maintaining the band’s sweet, jangly pop melodies, ‘Boredom’ is a warmer track, fitting of the oncoming autumnal weather.  It’s bittersweet and more mellow than summer releases like ‘She Takes Her Time’. Be sure to catch this live, Spinn aren’t a band you want to miss.

Give ‘Boredom’ a listen here and keep your eyes peeled for more news on the horizon.
