New York indie rock outfit Spires have accomplished quite a bit with only a few published songs to their name. Last year, the group released their Candy Flip b/w Comic Book 7-inch, as well as the hypnotic track “Sleepy Eyes”. Since then, they completed a residency at Pianos in New York City and toured with acts like Temples and Widowspeak. Now, they’re finally gearing up to release their self-titled debut EP on September 18th via 401K Music. As a teaser, the band has unveiled their latest single “Nothing More”.
Much like their previous material, there’s a dreaminess to the song. Acoustic guitar chords chug under moody synthesizer warbles and an upfront bass line. The vocals are blissfully obscured, like a hazy voice calling from a distance. The drum rhythm adds to the swirling atmosphere, drawing the listener to the serene melodies like a whirlpool. It’s an entrancing reintroduction to the band, complete with otherworldly aesthetics.
“The whole thing came together pretty quickly,” singer/guitarist Matt Stevenson tells Consequence of Sound. “We ended up recording it right before Christmas in this freezing cold house up in Boston and then back at Jack’s apartment in Brooklyn. It’s a hazy little autumnal song about feeling completely disconnected from everyone around you.”
