Midlands quartet Spoort have returned with a brand new track, ‘Charm and the Strange’.
The first material from the band since last year’s self-titled debut EP, it’s a tripping, hypnotic offering which you can check out below.
Guitarist and vocalist Paul Cupi explains: “Space is the place, or at the very least it’s a place. The modern musician’s reaction to space is indifferent. The city – being the centre of modern music – is so artificially bright that we are blind to the stars. Music has been completely disconnected from reality and is controlled by artificial art officials. ‘Charm and the Strange’ is a return to the archaic love of reality in the form of a cheesy pop song.”
Beware artificial art officials, Dear Reader. Never trust Neil Buchanan.
The track comes alongside a video directed by Ash Rommelrath – described as being “strangely representative of a year in lockdown, households across the country bound to armchairs and fixated on television sets.”
Can’t believe our sourdough efforts didn’t make the cut.
