Here’s a band you should get to know and love. Oslo’s Spielbergs single release “We’re All Going to Die” — deliciously melodic guitar thrash coupled with themes of morality. What’s not to love about that? — from their upcoming EP will drive straight into your ‘90s Touch & Go heart.
Bands probably hate being compared to other bands, but immediately I’m reminded of Superchunk, The Promise Ring, Jawbreaker, or early Japandroids with some Mclusky grit. If any of these names are striking a chord, Spielbergs could be your new stuff.
The band is set to drop their debut EP Distant Star on April 27th via DIY label By the Time It Gets Dark (named after the Sandy Denny/Yo La Tango song). The Spielbergs consist of Mads Baklien (guitar, vocals, synth), Stian Brennskag (bass), and Christina Løvhaug (drums).
