New to You – Spider Bags

‘It’s not where you are from, it’s where you’re going’ Ian Brown once said. He was, of course, wrong. The best bands have roots. Bands from the unglamorous parts of the US in particular seem to come infused with the spirit and history of their hometowns. It’s not merely authentic, it alters their worldview and leads to some pretty idiosyncratic records – records which sound all the better for it. North Carolina’s Spider Bags are one such example. They are a garage band with healthy dollops of punk and country thrown in. It’s a bit of everything and at the same time difficult to label. What it definitely is, however, is potent, ragged, exciting and bloody good. This is their new single ‘Chem Trails’, with new album Frozen Letters out on the 18th August. Enjoy.
