Spilly Walker head to The Joinery this Friday with School Tour & Diamond Dagger for a BYOB gig.
Distilling 30 years of electronic dance music, Spilly Walker’s songs are rich in sonic texture and filtered with a melodic pop sensibility.The tunes are speckled with hints of influences from a vast spectrum of music that they, brothers David and Robbie, love. Classic house,hip hop and electronica are all filtered through the Spilly song-writing machine in a subtly original way that brings to mind Arthur Russell’s transformative mini masterpieces of sound. The live sounds of Spilly are something to be experienced. Spilly brings the love they have for songs that inspire them, and communicate it with energy, through emotive melody, in a energetic live setting.
