Read our review for the album Moonwink by The Spinto Band released on Fierce Panda.
The Spinto Band are just dreamy! Their first album ‘Nice And Nicely Done’ set up a very distinctive sound almost unique to them and ‘Moonwink’ adopts a similar theme. Somehow the band manage to maintain 'swirl' throughout all their songs, it’s indie pop imagine what would be created if David Byrne visited a circus, that’s somewhere close to what we have here.
With plenty of good verses and choruses, the tracks move so quickly it’s almost like the band have been on a sugar-rush whilst writing the album….. or perhaps have all suffer with a slight attention deficit, quite like if The Decemberists and Morrissey had taken on the Futureheads.
It’s a shame our summer was so dull as ‘Summer Grof’ would have been a perfect accompaniment to a sun filled summer. There’s little hooks lurking from every corner – perhaps a few grander moments would be welcome but the short sharp quickness adds to this newly found ADHD spirit. A whole night of this might just leave you with a headache, but I find most of the best nights do that anyway!
