Spring King will always have the interesting footnote that they were the first band that Zane Lowe ever spun on Beats 1, but their career trajectory should take them far beyond that. Their latest single, “Who Are You?,” was just named Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 Hottest Record, so it’s suffice to say that they’ve got the radio game on lock. And it’s easy to hear why: The Manchester four-piece trade in high-energy, infectious smears of garage rock, and this one is probably their tightest yet. It’s great for a quick jolt, and “Who Are You?” clobbers along at a breakneck speed, with a pretty killer sax solo at the end there. Listen below.
“Who Are You?” is out 12/4 via Highs & Lows/PIAS — pre-order here. Their debut full-length is expected out next year.
