Spoon isn’t the average, run of the mill Indie Rock outfit. With a career spanning over 21 years, these seasoned veterans are quite far from the electronic, lo-fi sound that pumps through the current indie scene. Their newest album, “They Want My Soul”, is a testament to just this, and luckily their tour in stopping through Indy this Friday night at Old National Centre.
With memorable tunes ranging from the well-known “The Underdog”, “They Way We Get By” and “I Turn My Camera On”, to their newest single “Do You”, Spoon’s sound is easily accessible. The rock flavored melodies that this quintet creates makes them popular with alternative, rock, and indie fans alike.
Through television shows like The O.C. and movies like Stranger Than Fiction, the band reached commercial success and exposure. However, their material has remained consistent and strong. Their most recent release, “They Want My Soul”, proves that with 21 years under their belts these guys can still rock it. Pitchfork.com gave it an impressive 8.6/10 on their notoriously picky scale, and the album’s single “Do You” seems to be gaining popularity.
Whether you’re a long-term fan, a convert from The O.C., or just a person who appreciates music, Spoon will be a show to show up for. Classics will be played, and new favorites will be dropped at The Egyptian Room this Friday. These veterans have been around for a while, and at this rate, seem to be going nowhere but up!
