Redspencer releases new single ‘Happy Slow Riverbends’ and announce debut EP
Originally hailing from the sunny north corner of Australia known as the Gold Coast, three-piece psychedelic alt-pop outfit Redspencer are now based in the grey, hallowed alleyways of Melbourne. The rich, cultural tapestry of Melbourne has allowed the boys to draw influence from their surroundings and forge a unique identity that still reflects their sunny, laid-back upbringing of regional northern NSW, while situating them comfortably in the tropes of jangly, guitar-driven indie rock/pop.
Having garnered support in the southeastern regions through an acclaimed support slot for the Preatures in late 2014 and appearances at Big Day Out 2015, Redspencer are set to make waves in Melbourne with their signature style. With an imminent debut EP release on the cards, listeners will get a first taste of the boys’ upcoming offering with the latest single “Happy Slow Riverbends”.
The new single is a stark departure from the grungy, somber Beach Fossils-esque feel of their last releases “Tell” and “Here Or When”, which date back to more than a year ago. “Happy Slow Riverbends” is an ode to their humble regional beginnings with lo-fi chorus-infused vocals and bright, relaxed melodies that saunter across the top of the initially strident sea of electric guitars, before sliding into a chorale of cleanly-produced sparkly acoustic guitars and soaring vocal harmonies.
Redspencer’s forthcoming debut EP is due for release in June 2015 via Deaf Ambitions.
