Oggi gli Spinning Coin annunciano il secondo album Hyacinth, in uscita il 21 febbraio su Geographic/Domino. Hyacinth è un album pieno di poesia, luce e calore dove la band si lascia andare. Il nuovo album ha registrato numerosi cambiamenti dall’EP di debutto Permo del 2017: cambiamenti personali, cambiamenti geografici, un nuovo contesto e un mondo esterno in continuo cambiamento. L’album è stato registrato da Peter Deimel ai Black Box Studios in Francia. Oggi gli Spinning Coin condividono il primo singolo tratto da Hyacinth, intitolato “Feel You More Than World Right Now”. Accompagnato da un video diretto da Joseph May, “Feel You More Than World Right Now” è stato scritto da Armstrong – ora uno dei tre cantautori della band, insieme a Jack Mellin e Taylor.
The quartet both lost and gained a member, with Cal Donnelly exiting the group, and Rachel Taylor joining. Rachel and Sean Armstrong have relocated, leaving Glasgow for Berlin – Rachel, from Canada, had no choice but to leave the UK, and Sean followed her. “I think if anything the change has brought us closer as a band,” Rachel reflects, “and made it clear to us that we wanted to continue making music together“.
Throughout Hyacinth, there is joy in spades, but also melancholy, and a checked fury, threading the group’s political vision through their reflections on the personal and the interpersonal. Jack explains that the new songs “are about the need for love in an often very unloving world. Trying to find a balance of some kind between feelings of apathy, negativity, detachment and action, positivity and oneness.” Whilst Mellin’s songs were more pointedly political on Permo, here he has built more complexity into his writing. Elsewhere, Rachel contributes her first song to a Spinning Coin release, in the form of the beautiful “Black Cat”.
Hyacinth was recorded during a few days, by Peter Deimel at Black Box Studios in France, while the group were on a summertime tour. It was an idyll, a restorative respite. That carries through to the album, there’s a sense of society and collectivism at the heart of these pop songs, and a commentary on the optimism of the will, no matter how bleak things can get. Ultimately, on Hyacinth, the Spinning Coin ethos stays true to itself, as Sean expands about the experiences and the motivations behind the new music: “It’s trying to connect with other people on a human level, doing something that we love, and trying to embrace the unknown.”
Spinning Coin are Sean Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Jack Mellin (vocals, guitar), Rachel Taylor (bass, vocals, keyboards) and Chris White (drums).
