Nostalgia is more than just a powerful force in music. It’s the sole reason why we listen to some music. I don’t dust off my guitar and play the opening riffs to Darkness songs because I love them but because it reminds me of being a long haired 13 year old who dreamt of playing guitar solos on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.
However occasionally a band you listened to years ago bring a new track to the game and you remember everything you loved about the band, and that’s what we have with Spoon. Do You is the recent single off Spoon’s latest album “They Want My Soul” released on the 4th of August over here (US have to wait an extra day, suckers.) Spoon have been on my radar for years after they release Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga in 2007 and I’ve always been into their rough around the edges sound. Do You feels like a return to form after 2010’s slightly disappointing Transference. Listen to it below or alternatively watch the always brilliant video which was also recently released. I’m off to find an old guitar and put some nasal vocals to a terrible cover of “The Underdog.” In a bit.
