Midway through their tour with Courtney Barnett the unabashed kings of charming chaos: Spring King are back with another great song full of harmonies and perceived harassment as Tarek Musa and Co. go all paranoid with ‘They’re Coming After You’. Our Track of the Day.
The title track from their forthcoming EP the band tackle the ideas of ghosts and ‘voices in your head’ with a comforting assurance. Melting what is a delicate subject with particular care, and then crafting it as such, in to a gentle pop song with a bitter sweet sting in the tail. The song is soaked in British charm and heavy melody offering both the headphones moment and beer spilling sing-a-long. Expect to see lots of the latter at Live at Leeds this year as Spring King headline the DIY stage as well as numerous other festivals.
We have been following Spring King for a while now and with this release coming via Handsome Dad Records we just hope they can maintain what makes them so likeable: their ability to write a charming ditty about life, laughs and love. Really, what more do you need?
