The Spills

The Spills come to Bluedot fresh from gracing many ears and filling even more hearts last year, having released their critically acclaimed second album ‘Collecting Dust’ across a combination of Alcopop!, Philophobia and Too Pure.

A rough-edged thing of beautiful simplicity, Collecting Dust hangs together perfectly, deftly blending youthful rawness with polished guitar pop sensibility. Veering from heartfelt to existential, songs like ‘Floyd’, ‘A Film and a Frame’ and ‘Pepper’s Ghost’ fizzle and pop with characteristic charm, rewarding repeated listens with added nuance.

It’s no surprise that the band have been championed by the likes of BBC 6Music, Radio X, Amazing Radio, as well as being critically praised both online and in print press.
