Bustin' - new (free) single from the Spiratones

The Spiratones return with the surf-stained garage rock scorcher - Bustin'.

The brand new single, taken from their forthcoming album, delivers a full beam blast of primary colours; pile-driving guitars introduce an uncoiling melody and groove that connects the heart and the hips.

Available to download for free from Bandcamp now: (http://Hyperurl.co/bustin/bandcamp)

This weapons-grade sonic frizzle provides an enticing glimpse of the instrumental wonders contained within The Spiratones forthcoming debut album.

Bustin', is accompanied by a live version of 'Couch Surfer', recorded at the Grasmere Guzzler Music Festival in 2019. The studio recording of this song can be found on The Spiratones debut E.P. - Next Stop, The Moon!.
