The indie-punk four-piece from Manchester are preparing fans what is starting to sound like their strongest release yet as yesterday they released their third single from upcoming album A Better Life, ‘The Hum’.
The futuristic punk track premiered of Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show last night, receiving highly positive responses from their avid fanbase as well as the likes of Clash who have called it “an intensely creative, highly confident return”.
On the topic of the song’s background, bassist James Green said “it’s about returning to old haunts and old memories, and attempting to relive those visceral experiences and emotions, whilst realising that you’ve allowed yourself to slip into a life that wasn’t necessarily what you’d planned. It also came to encompass all the broader themes that the album touches on – self-reflection, overcoming adversity and negativity, and a constant striving for something better.”
Following on from Radio 6 favourite ‘Animal’ and grungy ballad ‘Us Vs Them’ which were both released in May, ‘The Hum’ is a raw and alien tune that encapsulates the expected whirring synth noises and scuzzy guitar riffs with even stronger choruses to rival their previous releases. Spring King are going from strength to strength with these recent singles which continue to set them miles apart from others in the genre that they take pride in experimenting with at any given opportunity.
A Better Life will be released on 17th August – the day before their headlining set at RiZE. To be one of the very first people to witness these scuzzy anthemic tunes plus loads more played live then grab your ticket now!
