Not Up to Much is Spearside’ Single Out Now

This band makes intriguing music.

As soon as I pressed the play button, the sensation I had was of being catapulted into the 70s. In one of those films about the Hippies who roamed the endless American roads with their Volkswagen Westfalia.

Perhaps the vocal line and the recording led me to imagine that era. In fact, this music is also modern, with a peculiar sonority and chord progression.

Spearside have managed to create a unique musical blend that makes them stand out from the crowd. All these modern and vintage influences have been skilfully mixed and the result is fantastic.

It is evident that these guys spend a lot of time in the rehearsal room and in doing so they have achieved this enviable musical alchemy.

Their new single Not Up to Much is a beautiful Alternative rock song with a hard beat from start to finish.

A great discovery that I recommend everyone to go and listen to.

Not Up to Much is Spearside’ Single Out Now

Spearside are an Irish three-piece lead by brothers Oisín (vocals/guitar) and Cian Walsh (vocals/bass), along with their friend Dylan Zovich (drums).

Their latest single “Not Up to Much” closes the trilogy of singles that have earned them allies such as Steve Lamacq of BBC 6 Music and Jack Saunders of BBC Radio 1. “Not Up to Much” was recorded during the same sessions as previous singles “Bus Stop” and “Crack in Your Brain”, giving all three songs a sonic cohesion stemming from the Walsh brothers’ home studio in rural Ireland that they built during the Covid-19 lockdowns.

Drawing on influences such as The Byrds, The Stooges, Badfinger, The Saints, Agent Orange, Dinosaur Jr., Teenage Fanclub and Brendan Benson, the Walsh brothers focus on moulding their influences to fit their own identity, rather than moulding themselves to fit their influences. The reality of multiple influences competing for the same space makes it hard to fit Spearside into a category cleanly, as they sound like everything and nothing you’ve heard before.
