SPiN - Dig Your Own Grave Single
SPiN is a four-piece band from Philadelphia that brings to mind the sound of the ‘90s with their hard-hitting alternative rock sound and the images in their new single that you can get from their website for free. The main person in the video is an attractive female that other than her boots not being Doc Martins could be right from the grunge/alternative rock boom period.
The song is a fuzzed out stomper that grabs your ears right away with the catchy chorus, the scratchy/fuzzy guitar playing, the incessant drumming and the slightly rough vocals. This is a fist-punching anthem that will get the kids shouting it back to them at shows and will get people up out of their seats. It’s a rough ride that shows that you can take some sounds from the past, add some modern touches and have something that is more than the sum of its parts, a song that hits your ears and makes you fan right away.
The band seems to have found a sound that suits them and have made a song that should be played loud and often. If you get a chance to see them live, do yourself a favor and learn the words to sing along.
