Portrait of The Spires (UK)
Formed in their native Sheffield, The Spires are Matt Smith (vocalist), Matt Pike (guitar), Matt Dacey (drums and percussion), Brian Ferry (Keys) and James Lowe (bass). Their individual style of electro-rock and 'hard style indie pop' (NME) has established The Spires as one of the most fresh and exciting new acts to arrive on the music scene. You can hear echoes of The Cure, Joy Division and Bloc Party within their music, but The Spires rise above the volatile and fragile pressures of whatever happens to be currently fashionable and carve out their own unique landscape. There is a pulsating ebb and flow to every element of their work, both layered and complex, but always with an eye to the melodic undercurrent that follows whatever creative path they feel compelled to pursue.

The Spires leave a trail of captivated audiences in their wake as they instigate an aural attack on the ears and 'explode in an adrenaline fuelled performance that gives you the buzz live music is intended to do' (Sandman Magazine). Such reviews have earned them support slots with Delphic, The Whip, Idlewild, One Night Only, Iglu & Hartly and even the mighty INXS on the Sheffield-leg of their world tour. Earlier this year, Embrace's Danny McNamara earmarked The Spires as 'ones to watch' and personally requested them to feature on BBC One's 'Inside Out' show before inviting the band to appear at his hugely successful Aftershow night in Manchester.

Listen out because there will be much more to hear from this talented five-piece over the coming year...
