Words from SPIES:
Dearest of Friends,
Seeing as the festive season is upon us (not really…), the time has come for us to announce the
5th annual SPIES Seasonal Soiree.
For those of you who haven’t been before, this is an evening of yuletide merriment, rock n roll, complimentary mince pies, mulled wine and a visit from “Sweaty Santa” himself. Expect a few extra surprises to celebrate the 5 year anniversary. Talbo Apres
What media are saying:
Hailed as “One of the most promising young bands in Ireland” (Nialler9), Spies blend a mix of dark and dynamic textures; reigned in by the unsettling croon of vocalist Michael Broderick, to deliver a sound that is theatrical in its intensity and archaic in its influence.
Developing upon the sonic landscapes and commercial success of previous releases, latest EP “Sea Creature” sees the band experimenting with uncharted territory. The result is a collection of songs that build on their “anthemic” sound whilst also reaching deeper into more reflective spaces and bodes grand ambitions in the midst of a 2016 debut LP.
The EP’s title track “Sea Creature” and follow up single “Quincy Morris” featured video accompaniment from director Bob Gallagher (Girl Band – “Bodies”).
Spies continue to garner fans even further from domestic shores and 2015 saw the group perform a string of sold out shows in Moscow as part of their UK/European tour, as well as appearances on this summer’s festival circuit.
The Guardian “Band Of The Day” – “Their music offers a sense that the world is a place where big, frightening things happen, both on a large scale and a personal, intimate level.”
NME – “Deep swooping vocals that could easily replace Carson Cox’s on records, Spies put a grander, more atmospheric take on the Floridians’ wiry sound.”
DIY – “Spies sound like they’re latching onto a higher calling. Every sky-reaching riff that creaks out of their frenzied guitars is headed for the heavens.”
CLASH – “An unabashed attempt to introduce dissonance wherever possible, “Moosehead” is nearly four minutes of unsettling, arresting and downright puzzling music.”
Nialler9 – “Moosehead takes the band’s modus operandi of indie-rock and stretches it into fuzzier, more-expansive shapes.”
SPIES plus very special guests – TBA
