Newcastle based Spelks announce the release of their noise-pop single The Happy Places
Out worldwide tomorrow, here at CLOUT we have one of the juiciest exclusive’s of the week. Being released via Montgomery Records, ‘The Happy Places‘ is the latest wonder from indie-pop outfit Spelks.
As the brainchild of Jonathon Sabiston, the musical adventure was born out of desire to create a project without compromise, recording and writing all the parts himself. With a wide production nudged with a lo-fi surrounding, The Happy Places was recorded in a cramped spare room in Jonathon’s Newcastle based flat.
Spelks told us… “The Happy Places’ lyrically drew inspiration from watching family cine films dating back to the early sixties. Every shot seemed to have so much laughter and joy running through it. Director and friend Harry Jenkinson had the idea of digitising some of these films to accompany the song.
We put the video together and I’m so glad to have the song and the inspiration behind it, in one place. To have my music accompanying footage of my grandfather, who passed away long before I was born, is something I really cherish.”
Written with an anxious shoulder on it’s case, the glistening number actually resonates with people living with agoraphobia too. Linked with elements that we can all relate to in someway, the uplifting message in the track’s core energises hope and a bright future ahead.
For a debut track, The Happy Places soothes the current climate of the world and we can’t wait to hear where Spelks’ career takes him.
