The blurb for SPINN’s new record explains that it “splits the world into two distinct spaces” where the ‘blue’ in the title refers to a period of anxiety and depression – but there’s very little melancholy as the Liverpool band prefer to focus on the other space – a place filled with colour and hope. Introspective opener Hello sets the tone for what’s to follow, where the romanticism of Daydreaming segues neatly into I Believe In Love, then recent single Stargazing has touches of the Stone Roses in its jangly melody.

With upbeat guitars and cheeky charm akin to that of Blossoms, especially on Billie and Sweet Like Honey, SPINN’s second album is a thoughtful, pretty collection of shimmering indie gems.
