Spring King describe themselves as a four-piece post-punk band from Macclesfield. I’m not disputing that at all, it’s just not very often that anyone describes their sound as ‘post-punk’ these days. And it’s not that they’re wrong – their music does have an early 80’s sound to it that is reminiscent of Joy Division, Jesus and Mary Chain, early Cure.
‘Detroit’ actually reminds me a bit more of the Ramones, it’s a pretty joyous energy fuelled rock track.
Their album Tell Me if you Like To was released last year and is definitely worth checking out. According to their Wiki page their song ‘City’ was the first track played on Beats 1 by Zane Lowe, so they’re obviously making waves, but probably not as many as they deserve to – I hadn’t heard of them until I got a word of mouth recommendation.
