The Spitfires – Save Me

Itโ€™s no news this whole COVID-19 thing sucks. And the lack of support for the industries that have been hit the hardest โ€“ culture, entertainment and events โ€“ is appalling. Especially since these are exactly the activities that are good for peoplesโ€™ mental health. So sad many enterprises and individuals in these sectors, worldwide, have been left in the cold.

British band The Spitfires are amongst the victims of this injustice. Last month, in a farewell letter to their fans, they announced their split. The band wrote: โ€˜Under the current climate of uncertainty within the music industry and the lack of support, the band can no longer function in the way we require, to move forwardโ€™.

25 February, The Sp(l)itfires will release their final album Play For Today. A record that will see them go out with a bang. Produced by Simon Dine (Dexys Midnight Runners, Paul Weller, The Waterboys), itโ€™ll combine influences from new wave, 2 Tone and Britpop, with electronic hooks and big choruses. Advance single Save Me has the wonderful, baggy Madchester vibe of 1990. It sets the tone for the long-player, exploring escapism in a warped, conservative version of suburbia. A great example of what wasted talent sounds like.
