New Single, Just Can't Keep This Feeling In, Playlisted on 6Music - Released 12th November on Clubhouse Records
The Dreaming Spires burst fresh out of the box with an enviable musical pedigree. Founder members and brothers Robin and Joe Bennett formerly played with the influential Goldrush and Danny & the Champions of the World and toured America backing Mark Gardener of Ride. At the festivals they founded, Truck, Wood and Truck America they have jammed with everyone from Mercury Rev and The Jayhawks to Garth Hudson of The Band.
The Dreaming Spires released their debut album Brothers in Brooklyn on Clubhouse in June 2012. The album unashamedly celebrates and name-checks the artists, songs and second-hand vinyl the band love - Big Star, Gram Parsons, The Band and The Byrds.
After the success of last year's debut single "Everything All The Time", and this year's single "Not Every Song From The Sixties Is A Classic", this album fills out the picture of what can be achieved by writing 11 great songs and recording them simply with great playing and harmonies, an exceptional offering from a band who celebrate transatlantic brotherhood in style.
The Dreaming Spires' debut album is picking up airplay from Spain to New Jersey, as well as from BBC6 Music, Xfm and Radio 2, and acclaim from all corners of the press with many calling it one of the albums of the year.
A new single, "Just Can't Keep This Feeling In", is released on November 12, 2012 on Clubhouse Records.
Like much of the album, the single showcases the musicianship of Robin & Joe Bennett with a little help from their friends; co-produced by Sam Williams (Supergrass/Go Team!) the recording features a powerhouse drum performance by Loz Colbert (Ride) and some psychedelic guitar from Jason Sebastian Russo (Mercury Rev/Hopewell).
Imagine Crosby, Stills & Nash singing with The Who at their peak, with James Jamerson on bass and lyrics by Dylan: "Just Can't Keep This Feeling In" is a timeless, turbo-powered pop gem that stands alone in the present musical landscape.
You can see the video, filmed by director Shamus Maxwell in Oxford's Old Bookbinders warehouse and featuring Loz Colbert on drums below, here on BandWeblogs.com.
