Spoon To Play Sydney and Melbourne This March

Critically-acclaimed American rock band Spoon, will be headlining shows in Sydney and Melbourne off the back of their much-awaited ninth studio album, 'Hot Thoughts'.

Last on Australian shores in 2015, the band will return with founding members Britt Daniel (lead vocals/guitar) and Jim Eno (drums), along with Rob Pope (bass guitar, guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), Alex Fischel (keyboard/guitar) and Gerardo Larios (keyboards /guitar).

“In a career that spans more than 20 years, Spoon has perfected a ruthlessly airtight efficiency: Every few years, the Austin band returns with a new batch of perfectly compact three-minute pop-rock songs. As consistent as it is beloved, Spoon never fails to hit its mark – delivered forcefully, and with hooks for days.” - NPR

“The dynamic new song rises and falls like an orchestral disco opus, with singer Britt Daniel first unleashing a mechanised croon over a simple beat and trembling strings that bursts with a flourish of guitars. ‘Hot Thoughts’ grows vibrant with each peak and closes with Daniel wailing over a euphoric vamp.” - Rolling Stone

Forming in 1993, Spoon has swiftly made a reputation as one of the few modern bands who maintained their trademark hypnotic appeal throughout shifts in sound and tone. They were crowned Metacritic’s ‘Best Music of the Decade’ for the 2000s, thanks to their hugely successful albums, including: Girls Can Tell (2001), Kill The Moonlight (2002), Gimme Fiction (2005), which featured hits ‘I Turn My Camera On’ and ‘I Summon You’, Ga Ga Ga Ga (2007) featuring ‘The Underdog’ and ‘You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb’, and Transference, which brought singles such as ‘Is Love Forever’ and ‘Written In Reverse’.

2014’s They Want My Soul generated similar unanimous raves from fans and critics alike and spawning hits such as ‘Do You’ and ‘Inside Out’.

Now, fans are eagerly awaiting for Spoon's newest album. Hot Thoughts, out 17 March, sees the band returning to label Matador, who released their debut Telephono more than two decades ago. This, however doesn’t reflect a return to earlier sound. The album also sees the band co-producing alongside Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Tame Impala). Title track ‘Hot Thoughts’ represents uncharted territory for the band. Despite emitting a familiar essence, the song weaves a mixture of pop-rock, psychedelic, garage and irresistible rhythms, landing at Consequence Of Sound’s #1 spot in their January Songs Of The Month.

"Britt’s multi-layered, wailing vocals add an extra layer of electric energy to the already raucous tune and makes it one of their loosest and potent songs in years." - The Anchor Point

"Thinking it a kind of witchcraft that a band can find a brand new audience with each of their eight albums, as well as inspire a new set of definitions around what the band is every time." - FasterLouder
