Featured on the newest edition of Post-Rock PL compilation titled the Landscape After The Flood, SPIRAL open up a new series of articles and interviews documenting some of the bands that teamed up for this amazing project. This opening interview is an attempt to bring more awareness to the impressiveness of the female voice and this particular approach, in which a band blends atmospheric soundscapes with rock, or even pop stylings to form a truly cozy and pleasant sound. I think it will be very interesting to see and listen how their music progresses as, but I truyl believe SPIRAL would flourish under the wings of even more experimental approach to rock.
April 1st 2015 marked exactly a year after the premiere of the band’s album “Cloud Kingdoms!” Grab it here and don’t forget to taste all three compilations by Post-Rock PL.
