Spelks · The Happy Places
Ah, Newcastle. The city that has fast become one of our favourites for new music and the new single from Spelks is no exception. ‘The Happy Places’ dropped last Friday on Montgomery Records and the world is a better place for it.
The guitars open the track with a gentle strum that holds a moodier edge that underlines the single. The vocals in places take on a Placebo-esque melody and in other comes through with a unique edge that slots into the slightly down-tempo alt sound just perfectly. Moments might remind you of Weezer and other of something a little darker, ‘The Happy Places’ keeps you wondering where you might have heard this before and the answer is nowhere. Its a sublime and unique offering and gets high marks from us.
