On the Horizon: Longshore Drift, Spires.

On the Horizon: Longshore Drift, Spires.

I can’t help but sense that had Floridian four-piece Surfer Blood ever drifted a fair ol’ way up the East Coast to initially come together beside the murky grog of the East River, that they’d sound rather more edgy for want of a less tacky term. They’d probably sound not dissimilar to Brooklyn quartet Spires in fact, whose Sterling release is just that: an hypnotic twizzler of interwoven psych, pop and ebullient pomp, as though a twist drill it weaves its insistent way down into your eardrums where it pounds away impudently for a smidgen over three giddy minutes. Batten down the hatches, and let ‘em bang the drums with that same relentlessness of NYC itself, we should say…
