Bay Area and Los Angeles based indie/post-punk supergroup SPICE have unveiled their second single “All My Best Shit,” along with its video which serves as a stylized series of cinematic and interconnected vignettes, for which a picture of a young boy, a paper Harlequin mask, a Cramps t-shirt, and more take the spotlight.
The song is an alternative rock California daydream, treads the hazy lines between Fugazi to The Jesus and the Mary Chain, and The Horrors, with a driving sonic energy that warms the blood like the summer air.
Ultimately, “All My Best Shit,” is a track which that examines pain through an introspective lens. The end result sounds unconstrained or uninhibited, despite lyrics about being bound to one’s own inner angst.
Watch the video below:
SPICE is Ceremony’s Ross Farrar (vocals), Sabertooth Zombie’s Cody Sullivan (bass), Ceremony’s Jake Casarotti (drums), Creative Adult’s Ian Simpson (guitar) and Victoria Skudlarek (violin).
“All My Best Shit”, follows the SPICE’S debut album’s first track shimmering anthem: “First Feeling”.
The album was developed over course of many late-night sessions at Panda Studios in Fremont, California with producer Sam Pura (Basement, The Story So Far, Self Defense Family).
Together, the band captures through field recordings intimate aural snapshots from each member’s everyday lives to conjure a collective world they refer to as “the power of groupthink.” The result is sonic bliss and the kind of symbiosis one would expect from such talent coming together in synergy.
Spice’s self debut album arrives July 17 via Dais Records, which you can preorder here.
