SPiN – Playing Dead

I love it when a group is truly a group. This cut starts with the drummer keithmooning all over the place, and the lead guitar player chasing a metal pop sound through the heavens of beautiful noize. The lead singer convincingly growls “first impressions can delight me”. My first impression of these guys is absolute delight, especially as the song progresses and band members vocally join to create harmonies that are especially delicious in this power-pop tune. ½ way through they begin a vocal call & response that has me hopping all over the room in glee. Exciting! SPiN
