Following on from a summer spent playing European festivals and picking up global airplay and press praise from Rolling Stone, KROQ, Indie Shuffle, Amazing Radio, XS Noize, SRF3 & Rockstr Magazine, Swiss rockers Spencer will release their new single Harry's Still Sad on Friday 16th September. The track is the second single to be lifted from their Swiss Top 40 album We Built This Mountain Just To See The Sunrise, and is an infectious indie rock tale showcasing pulsating synth riffs, baritone vocals and crashing guitars.
Spencer are an established force in Europe & have built a loyal fanbase in Switzerland & Germany. Their videos have been in rotation on MTV/Viva and the band have perfected their Britpop-influenced post-punk over the course of three studio albums.
For their fourth album (released in May), the band enlisted Reto Peter (Green Day, Counting Crows) to add a widescreen polish to their best set of songs yet. With Leo Niessner’s baritone vocals & distorted guitars, Pashi’s driving bass & JP Free’s powerful rhythms already forging a distinctive sound on their previous records, the atmospheric keyboards of newest member Reto Eggenberger add a 21st Century sheen to their 90’s indebted riffs & choruses. The results are a thumping set of energetic rock songs that have already proved to be a hit on radio playlists & at festival singalongs.
Spencer will be playing shows in support of the single and album this summer. For more info, head to www.spencer.ch
