Spangled

The eagerly anticipated sophomore EP from Mancunian cosmic 4 piece Spangled has Arrived. ‘All in Colour’ consists of 6 tracks, including 3 new tunes, 3 previous releases. 

The record opens with new tune ‘Swordfish Trauma’ which instantly encompasses everything we’ve come to expect from this band, ingenious lyrics, funky riffs and driving bass lines, this opener is no different, and a superb way to begin. 

It is then followed by two previously released songs, ‘Crank Up The Splendour’ – a perfect tune for the summer, as well as ‘Little Tom’ a raucous journey and one that really proves the liveliness and energy within the band. 

‘Home’ is next, which has a real anthemic feel to it, similar to its predecessors ‘Good Life Better’ and ‘Human’ off their previous and debut EP ‘Chasing Nebulas’. It’s a song that really shows the range and ability in not only songwriting but musicianship too.

The penultimate track is ‘Horizons Glance’ and as with its fellow previously released tunes, has had an unbelievable reaction from the community and its accolades speaks for itself as it has been named ‘Record of the Week’ on XS Manchester and ‘Track of the Day’ with This Feeling. 

The closing track is ‘The Road Ahead’, beginning with a now infamous interlude now common on a Spangled record, and is followed by an almost Ska inspired accompaniment. It’s appropriately named to look forward to the future, which if this standard is maintained, will only be a bright one for this superb outfit. 

They head out on a tour across the UK next week, with tickets running low, and perfect warm up for a festival season consisting of headline and main stage slots.
