Spinning Coin share new song 'Money Is A Drug'
31st October 2017
Ahead of the release of their debut album Permo (due Nov 10th on Geographic) and upcoming headline tour, Glasgow’s Spinning Coin share a new cut from the record, ‘Money Is A Drug’.
Spinning Coin’s two songwriters - Sean Armstrong and Jack Mellin – oscillate taking centre stage on a song; Armstrong’s more melancholic melodies contrasting with Mellin’s urgent refrains. And the deceptively spry ‘Money Is A Drug’ is one of Mellin’s, its flecks of country-soul charm concealing lyrics calling out ‘class war’ and economic inequality.
Permo was recorded with Edwyn Collins at his AED Studios, and at Green Door Studio (the recording centre for the new wave of Glasgow artists) with Stu Evans. It is an album of bold steps and simple gestures, coming from a group who have found, seemingly effortlessly, a confident, unpretentious and egalitarian way of working together.
The fourteen songs on Permo trace all kinds of terrain, though the overarching story might be that of a group looking for escapism, somehow and anyhow, in the midst of a social and cultural climate that’s closing down possibilities for difference and community.
Permo is available to pre order on limited-edition green coloured vinyl, standard vinyl, CD – all of which come with a booklet - and digital.
Having previously supported Teenage Fanclub and Real Estate, Spinning Coin will head out with Girl Ray and Dinosaur Jr. after their own headline tour.
