Seattle-based indie rock/psychedelic rock band Spirit Award are sharing their latest track “New Energy,” off of their upcoming album The Fear. Spirit Award consist of singer/songwriter Daniel Lyon and bassist/collaborator Chris Jordan. The band’s aim is to reach the human spirit through their music. Spirit Award are influenced by entities such as Arthur Russell, Neu!, and Suicide.
Listen to the track here:
Band member Daniel Lyon shares his thoughts:
“The song is a wishful look into the future. Change or progress isn’t always good as we have seen throughout history. But I believe some things and minds in this world must change in order for us to have a better and more unified future. We can start by looking at ourselves and changing and challenging our patterns, behaviors and the way we treat others.”
Spirit Award’s new album The Fear will be released on May 19 through Share It Music. Pre-order the album here.
According to the press release:
The new album The Fear, co-produced/mixed by Trevor Spencer (Beach House, Father John Misty), is an exploration of the supernatural, love, dreaming/waking, and most of all facing the things that scare you or you think you can’t do, all encompassed in a warping and changing landscape. Shedding your perceived notions of what you think life or the world is and being open to new ideas or experiences. The Fear is intended as a meditation, a release of energy and putting positivity and motivation for creating love and joy, challenging what you were raised in or what society tells you to believe. Finding what rings true to you based on your experience, enjoying the journey with plenty of room to ask questions and entertain the mystical.
