The seasons may change, but Spring King's banger ratio remains intact.

Some things are worth waiting around for. In a world where new bands are expected to explode immediately or get the fuck off ‘the blogs’, Spring King haven’t rushed on the road to their debut album. Of late, they’ve been content to build up with a string of brilliant singles, gathering up airplay en mass. Now they’re finally ready to go, and they’re doing it in style.

‘The Summer’ is, according to the band, an ode to the Beach Boys. You can sort of see it too. Driving like a mad bastard, it’s not a woozy, melodic like-for-like tribute act, but rather a song soaked in the spirit of Californian sun. Or, at the very least, a vat of Sunny Delight; the chorus blinding with its euphoric sing-a-long charms, the verses showing something deeper at work.

Of all their class, Spring King feel like they might be the ones with the full package. The songs are clearly there, but delivered with a genuine sparkle too. If the charge is starting, Spring King are leading the way.

Spring King's debut album 'Tell Me If You Like To' is coming on June 10th.
