Spiral City are the Coventry-based four piece alt indie rock band consisting of Louie Forde on Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar, Jack Waterfield on Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals, Tom White on Bass/Backing Vocals and Harvey James on Drums/ Percussion/Backing Vocals.
Formed in late 2022 and with two previous single releases under their belt, ‘Divide’ and ‘You and I’ the band have already been tipped as "Ones to watch" by BBC Introducing, after number radio plays on BBC C&W and many other independent radio stations, as well as selling out their own headline gigs at the likes of The Tin Music & Arts. The band have now released their latest single ‘Rise’.
‘Rise’ is a powerful offering from the band. The intro with its strumming guitar riffs and paired back drums allowing the vocals to burst forth with a clear precision giving the listener a hint of what's to be unleashed as the track builds up in tempo and pace into a positive crescendo as the chorus hook kicks in. There’s a moment of somewhat quiet reflection around the midway section before the track races off again exiting on a positive, exhilarating high. We can really see how the accompanying video to this track works so well.
The band have said of the track and upcoming video, "The music video that accompanies the single features an up and coming female boxer and the idea behind it is that she is fighting her “demons” and her emotions and will have to defeat them before she can defeat her opponents in the ring. The song is inspired by life itself and the determination, bravery, confidence and resilience it ultimately takes to traverse its muddy waters knowing that none of us get out alive.”
‘Rise’ was collaboratively written by the band and was recorded at 300 Acre Studios in Coleshill, Birmingham by Matt Cotterill.
Ahead of the release, the single had been picked up by Twitch streamer and new music advocate Tim Senna who has agreed to review the single and give the single its first play on his twitch live stream.
