Spies - London, Sebright Arms
Dublin newcomers Spies debuted their waltzing, winter-dressed 'November Sun' on a Neu Bulletin two months back. Their crafty, gravity defying guitar pop has come on leaps and bounds ever since. Their first London headline show is a must-see.
THE BIG NEU THING
Whatever London's Looks are dosing themselves with, they're ending up with the same punch-packing electronic leaning aesthetic that arrives on Warpaint's forthcoming second album. That's a very good record, and honestly, 'Everest' by Looks could easily slot right in if members swapped round. Echo-drenched and moody to the bone, true to its title this song climbs and climbs until it's king of the world. 'Wasted', too, is another strong impression from the atmospheric-obsessed wannabee giants. Looks' future, err… looks good.
