Midlands four-piece Spoort, preparing to release of their self-titled EP, have shared a brand new track ‘FLYY’.
The record, out May 29 through House Anxiety/Marathon Artists, is described by the band as “more like ringtones than songs” and, when discussing the new track, they added: “FLYY is the feeling of approaching the inevitable, a thought on the modalities of leaving earth”.
To coincide with the release of their new single, Spoort have added the accompanying music video which has been directed by Mia Clark. “I wanted to create something close to my heart, using real people and real experiences,” the director exaplined.
She added: “As British people we have an understanding into the rotating dynamic of pub culture and in small towns like Ramsgate, we use pubs as a way of connecting and staying alive. This video reflects my upbringing, and I hope people feel as nostalgic as I do.”
Released through the label that triumphed the likes of King Krule, Courtney Barnett and more recently MIKE and Vagabon, it should come as little surprise that Spoort have drawn from a range of contemporary musical influences such as The Streets’ very own Mike Skinner.
Successfully blending genres in a midlands melting pot, Spoort have managed to forge an indie anthem by sprinkling some of jazz, hip-hop and house toppings into their expansive new sound.
