Spires bring Britannia to The Horseshoe

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Spires are from the UK. They are touring with UK band Toy, they have a certain British look and the singer has a John Lennon influenced delivery. They have a Beatles' Peace and Love 60s vibe that goes beyond the presence of a Hofner bass on stage. My ears describe it as, "Beatles filtered through Oasis/Britpop". They are from Brooklyn, New York and like tour mates Toy, celebrated their first Toronto show with us on January 14.
Check out some tunes and see if you enjoy their brand of cool.
