York’s Lo-fi punk upstarts Fawn Spots new single Spanish Glass will be released on Louder Than War (in partnership with Southern Records) on 20 August. To mark their release, the band have unfurled a party video edited and Produced by John Tuffen of Minimism and Nschlfn, starring Arlo, Billy and a whole host of supporting actors. Watch it below and revel in its shards of noise pop!
 Fawn Spots formed a collective putting on their own shows in a Victorian basement of an art gallery with tremendous results. Each night includes a record stall, cakes for sale and project movies; definitely a committed bunch if nothing else.
Says John Robb / Louder Than War “It’s an almost impossible trick to take the glorious rush of underground rock and make it into pop music without losing any of the imagination and energy but Fawn Spots have pulled it off. Versed in early Dischord records and post hardcore noise they have somehow turned it into a glorious, noisy melodic guitar wall of sound…”
