Hartford alternative rock four-piece Spillway makes riff-heavy rock music that diverges into a wide variety of styles, from singalong punk-pop to angsty shredding mini-metalisms. Earlier in September, the band announced their new EP, Fish Can Drown, and released it’s first sample of new music, the wide-eyed power popper, “New England Expatriates.”
Today, we are premiering another new song off the new record, “Stage Four”. Written by main vocalist Matt Palmer, the song stands in stark contrast from that first preview, forgoing a major key appeal for a moodier alt-rock waltz, a shredding bassline, and a forlorn wailing vocal that evokes heavy catharsis about removing the cancerous elements of your life in order to make it through.
Spillway will be playing their release show at Blind Moose in Bloomfield, CT on October 27th with Jelani Sei, Bat House, and Glambat. Event page here.
Fish Can Drown will be released on October 20th.
