We’re hearing news that the Swedish female-fronted rockers ‘Spiders’ sophomore release Shake Electric is set for issue via Spinefarm Records on November 3.
The quartet offer a hard rock retro 1970’s-inspired sound with a modern and unique atmosphere. Their forthcoming European tour will also include an appearance at Hard Rock Hell Festival in North Wales, as well as other UK dates (see below.)
An official video for the title track has been revealed. [See below] We had a listen:
This is as big as a heavy knit cardigan and heavy as a pair of clogs.
The kind of sound that might have been blasted out of your favourite hippy boutique on the boardwalk in ‘74. A mix of free hum bass, clattering drums, guitars that pound out unnecessarily loud grunts – yet all embroidered with a voice of seaweed salt.
The piece is simple – held together with eyelets and buckles of sparkling guitar. But it’s exciting, nonetheless.
The handclap interval is wonderfully nostalgic – with a boogie groove. Less brutal than Steppenwolf, but more psychedelic than Slade.
“Let’s get together…” Yes indeed!
Pushy vintage rock – with a voice so swishy that it swells up and flaps in your heart. Pro-weight and super-clean!
