Ahead of the release of their forthcoming EP – Harder
The new track is the sound of stylistic progression from psychedelic-inspired, surf rock into something uncompromising and rough around the edges. Experimenting with how fierce their sound can get, ‘I Just Wanna Be Left Alone’ plays with indelible vocals, thundery, rumbling drums and goosebump-inducing guitar riffs.
Written about the limiting confinements of living in a modern society, where solitude and seclusion seem more and more impossible to get a hold of, the track taps into this sinister claustrophobia with an upbeat catchiness. Speaking on the track inspiration, the band said: “I think the song is about feeling suffocated in the city. From the current political climate to today’s over populated planet you can’t help but feel claustrophobic in this modern world of technology – where everything and everyone are instantly available to you. Isolation is a long forgotten gift.”
Made up of Vincent Davies, Ranald Macdonald, Josh Lewis and Oscar Robertson, the quartet have collected a fierce reputation and a growing following in the last 18 months, with support slots for the likes of Hanni El Khatib and Yak, a four-week NME Koko residency and radio airtime from the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Huw Stephens. After Spindle first stumbled across Hidden Charms way back last April, the band have since captivated our eyes, ears and bodies with a shattering performance at this summer’s Y Not Festival, and garnered a mass of attention from successful slots at Kendal Calling, The Great Escape and the iconic Isle of Wight Festival.
