Spoon's Huge Comeback Single: "Do You"

Two weekends ago, I was lucky enough to catch Spoon, one of my most idolized rock bands, live at a small venue as part of a secret 2am NXNE set. I was in complete shock as I stood in a crowd of less than 150 people watching my beloved Britt Daniel shake across the stage in front of me. I was so close - I could have easily thrown my gum at him (although I wouldn’t do that).

After this spellbinding experience, I’m even more infatuated with Spoon than I’ve ever been – craving new songs and Britt Daniel rasp to fill my headphones. This is one of the reasons why I was so excited to see that last week, the band released a new single called “Do You” – a bouncy Brit-rock track that, although late to the game, is easily going to be one of my most played summer songs. Although melodic and sweet, Daniel's growl brings an edge to the song that balances the pop of Spoon with his grungier Divine Fits habits.

This is one of the best Spoon songs I’ve heard - up there with the best of them. Look out for They Want My Soul on August 15.
