Spawts Unveil 'Clicks & Whistles' EP

Spawts Unveil 'Clicks & Whistles' EP

Chris Cudby / Friday 16th April, 2021 2:48PM

Recorded with engineer Nick Moyle at his garage studio in Waiuku, the new five song EP from Tāmaki Makaurau's Spawts is brimming with off the cuff DIY energy. Undergoing a bit of a lineup shakeup since 2019's debut album AV1, Spawts' Kieran Ormandy and Jamie Hannah are joined on Clicks & Whistles by new core member Sam Austin, yet the band's knack for a catchy hook remains untouched. Including recent student radio hit 'Headroom' packaged with four more fresh tunes, Spawts whip up a sonically diverse, guitar-driven storm encompassing hazy shoegaze and bruising post-punk / rock, with Ormandy's existential lyricism touching on "self sabotage, expired circumstances & broken friendships." Joined live by Jake Love on bass, Spawts are taking the logical next step with an EP launch event on 30th April in Morningside — listen up and grab tickets below...

UPDATE 27/04/21: Spawts have announced a Christchurch release show for Clicks & Whistles in May...
