about

After a slew of lockdown singles and an EP that picked up plays on radio stations globally including BBC 6 Music and Radio X in the UK, and RTE and Sirius internationally, the Oxford sextet release their summer single Spinning.

Led by one of the best and most addictive jangle guitar intros (with accompanying hand-claps) this side of the millennium – the six piece band Crash straight in to support Jody’s unwavering, charismatic vocals. The track utilises a classic indie sound reminiscent of woefully underrated female-fronted indie guitar bands of the 80s and early 90.

The lyrics are endorsing in their honesty, dealing with the turmoil of relationships gone sour after auspicious beginnings. Spinning features the band's trade-mark multiple layers of melody using hard-hitting synth, guitar and vocal harmonies.

lyrics

SPINNING

Standing alone, alone, my own
Spinning my dreams and turning them upside down
Wonder if I’m really winning

Holding on tight, on tight, the night
Spinning my dreams and turning them upside down
Maybe face a new beginning

It’s only cos I care
But there’s nothing left to share
to share oooo oooo oooo

We want it all
Will love find a way
Bring back, that golden sunny day
We wanted it all
Can there be a way
bring back, throw back, show me yesterday

Je ne sais pas, je souris et je pleure
Spinning my dreams and turning them upside down
Wonder if i’m really willing

It’s only cos i care
but there’s nothing left to share
to share oooo ooooo oooo

We want it all
Will love find a way
Bring back, they hold and sunny day
We wanted it all
Can there be a way
Bring back, throw back, show me yesterday
