After their break from recording, Spies made their comeback earlier this year going from strength to strength. Broadstone, directed by Sam Edwards, is the latest release from their long-awaited debut LP, Constancy which will be released in full on November 23rd via Trout Records.
The new song is unlike anything the band have released before, showcasing their versatility within their distinctive style. In addition to paying homage to legends Quincy Jones and James Murphy, Broadstone is a love letter to Dublin city which has been inspiring the band's writing over the past few months.
Speaking about writing the track Singer Michael Broderick said, “Broadstone is one of the 3 neighbourhoods that make up present-day Phibsboro. It's where I was living during the writing of Constancy, it's really the setting of the album for me. I was living with Morgan from Saint Sister and her boyfriend Rory who's a documentary maker, so our flat was a hotbed of creativity. I wanted to capture a snapshot of that time in a song.”
The track itself is a hotbed of creativity, featuring their synth-rock sounds with Brazilian percussion.
