Spoon have released a new video set to a live recording of album standout track, ‘I Ain’t The One.’ Renowned British artists and filmmakers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard (Silent Sound, 20,000 Days On Earth) have captured one of the world’s most formidable live bands in an intimate studio setting, the slinky silhouettes and blue-tinged shadows complimenting the song’s sinewy synths and Britt Daniel’s standout soulful vocals. The minimalist drums and bass surface sporadically throughout, building tension across the melancholy melody that never quite relents.
It has been a whirlwind year for Spoon, Austin’s most esteemed rock ambassadors, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. Spoon’s ninth album Hot Thoughts came out to a cavalcade of critical ecstasy in March, and has sustained continuous praise in all the “Mid-Year Best-Of” lists, a sure sign of what’s to come as we enter the last leg of 2017.
Spoon are: singer/guitarist Britt Daniel, drummer Jim Eno, bassist Rob Pope and Alex Fischel on keyboards and guitar.
