SPINN's debut album is full of melody, enthusiasm and the infectious charm of youth

Liverpool quartet Spinn make the kind of shimmering indie pop that will always feel timeless. Full of melody, enthusiasm and the infectious charm of youth, their self titled debut album sets its sights straight for the indie disco.

The songs chime and jangle pleasingly, like on the fleet-footed opening pair of ‘Believe It Or Not’ and ‘Is There Something That I Missed?’ while ‘Notice Me’ adds a gently funkier vibe. ‘Foundations’ is a soaring hit that shoots for the moon but despite all the sunny splendour the little cracks of insecurity that come with being young can’t help but seep through like on the affecting acoustic closing track ‘Heaven Sent’ .

There’s very little rough edges or darkness here, Spinn don’t want your soul they just want to put a smile on your face and in these dark times the satisfying salve of indie pop goodness is always welcome.
