With a strong selection of releases already behind them, Runcorn trio SPILT are well on their way to proving their potential. Having recently supported the likes of Strange Bones and played festivals including Liverpool Sound City, the three piece have managed to secure themselves a stint of support dates with LA punk rockers FIDLAR.
Fusing grungy riffs and psychedelia, SPILT have now made their return with new single Lalka and its B-side, Saliva, are daring and powerful tracks.
Lalka is a track with a fierce and progressively building energy, starting with striking but smooth vocals and ending as a culmination of grungy and jarring distortion. Driven by the moody guitar and increasingly aggressive vocal line, echoes of the 90s are carried through the track and beautifully set the tone for B-Side, Saliva.
Saliva opens with a catchy hook and again builds with the same aggression as Lalka, with its moody lyrics really defining the intention of the track; escalating into quite a storm of danceable rage. Achieving this level of sound from a 3-piece band is a rarity, and proves SPILT as strong newcomers.
