Heavy footed guitar stomps onto the scene, announcing Spares’ presence with an unapologetic level of confidence. This brazen Liverpool based band sure knows how to make an impact, with Adam Boyd’s drumming lending ‘Not Enough’ it’s purposeful stride from start to finish. Vocally, the drawling tone is reminiscent of Miles Kane – which probably has something to do with the latter’s Wirral upbringing. From a lyrical and indeed melodic perspective, it’s quite an angry construction – epitomised by the “you know we’re not enough, you know we’re not enough” cries which bring the song to a close.
The track was first premiered on BBC Introducing last week and has since then been reviewed on a number of blogs. A word that is bandied about all too often in the music industry is “talent”, but these lads really do have a lot of potential, and so it’ll be interesting to chart their progress over months to come.
