SPIELBERGS - VESTLI VINYL (LTD. ED. ECO MIX)
LIMITED EDITION ECO MIX VINYL
Release Date: 26th August 2022
"Following on from the success and rich promise of their debut LP ‘This Is Not The End’ in 2019, Oslo’s Spielbergs return triumphantly with their follow up ‘Vestli’. The new record sees the band stir that melting pot of anthemic heart-on-sleeve indie/punk rock, with an frenetic, 1000mph energy and intense heaviness – soaring and heartfelt but weighty and dark. The result is something that sits within the likes of The Replacements, Japandroids, Cloud Nothings, Titus Andronicus but also out on its own. Previously the band have seen acclaim for the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, Kerrang, Q and the i-Paper as well as being lauded by The Guardian and NME as ‘ones to watch'. The band also garnered support on the airwaves from BBC1, BBC6 Music, and Amazing Radio. The band did not disappoint live either (Kerrang describing the band as “consistently exquisite”) undertaking a series of knock-out live shows, whether headlining or supporting the likes of Foxing. They also hit up several festival stages including Hit The North, Live At Leeds and 2000 Trees. SELECT QUOTES FOR PREVIOUS ALBUM: Physical intensity, gooey emotions, and devotionals that are joyous.” - Pitchfork “Big, heart-on-sleeve guitar-rock with a go-for-broke anthemic intensity.” - Stereogum “They’ve perhaps made the best debut of 2019 so far.” – NME “Joyfully ragged, emo-esque, power-pop songs.” - The Guardian “An amazing band” – Dan P Carter, Radio 1 “Fans of fuzzy, propulsive cathartic jams, are about to have a new favourite band.” – Kerrang! “Pummelling yet melodic guitars batter you round the heart with nary a pause for breath… Full of huge, lung-busting, shouting-into-the-wind vocals and relentless drums, guitars and everything else, cheerily-titled new single ‘We Are All Going To Die’ shows little concern for restraint.” - DIY "We Are All Going To Die" is encased in a relentless soundscape of drums and guitars, owing its all-encompassing musicianship to shoegaze that is underpinned by a distinctly emo heart.” - The Line of Best Fit “A roller coaster ride of rollicking riffs, descending and ascending with a luminous fury and friskiness, before delivering us back home again safe and sound, but breathless.” - 405 “An alt-rock banger, ‘We Are All Going To Die’ is a lot more fun than it sounds.” - Dork “Guitars drill down at all angles, while the pummelling percussion sounds like a cement mixer trying to chew up a steel beam.” - CLASH “One of the most exciting bands of the year.” – The i Paper"
