Weekly Feature: Spires announces 2014 release + plays The Wick on May 15

Formed in 2012 by frontman Matt Stevenson, Spires brings uncommonly groovy beats to the Brooklyn psych rock scene. For a young band that has only officially released two songs, they’ve got a lot of accomplishments under their (likely fringed) belts. Spires has played big venues like Irving Plaza and Bowery Ballroom, they toured alongside UK buzz act TOY, they’re amassing a following in England, and they performed a late-April gig with UK-based The Horrors at House of Vans. In the interview we are linking to under this blurb, the band promised a new release in 2014. While waiting, you can see them live at The Wick in Brooklyn on May 15.

Spires unveil video for "Candy Flip" + play Union Pool on 11.26

Brooklyn's Spires was one of the "buzz bands" at this past edition of the CMJ Music Marathon - we were really sorry they had to cancel at the last minute our show at Pianos on CMJ Friday. The daydream pop* quartet, whose sound is reminiscent of an intriguing combination of The Cure and early Doves - just released the video for their single "Candy Flip" - check it out below. See them live at Union Pool on November 26 with Temples

* "Daydream" rather than dream pop, since they sing: "Sleep, that's an option I don't need..."


Psych NYC band on the rise: Spires lands Pianos residency in July

Though relatively new to the local psych-rock scene, Brooklyn’s Spires have already begun to garner some well-deserved attention. Their song “Candy Flip” (streaming) takes direct aim at the late 1980’s “Madchester” era, capturing that vibe and sound with impressive results. Much like the Gallagher brothers looked to The Beatles for a framework to expand on, Spires takes The Stone Roses lead and builds their own playground out of it. “Comic Book” keeps the Manc-style vibe intact, pushing things forward with bigger production values like handclaps, big chorus ambiance and a solid percussive base. Sweet pop background vocals make this track perfect for the next coming-of-age film or tv soundtrack. The band is now in residency at Pianos, with shows every Tuesday this month. - Dave Cromwell
