We’re excited to be welcoming Spinning Coin back to Manchester!

Hyacinth, the second album by singular Glasgow/Berlin quartet Spinning Coin, is a bold step forward. A breathless rush of glorious guitar pop, it’s an album full of poetry and light, with real warmth of heart. Recorded over only two days, but with several years of new experiences and wisdom at its core, Hyacinth is confident and poised, holding nothing back.

They’ve achieved a lot since the release of their debut album, 2017’s Permo. With that album, and its two preceding singles (Albany and the magisterial Raining On Hope Street), they became a beacon for people looking for great pop that balanced realism with escapism. Permo was full of songs equal parts personal and political, and the sound was both a development of Glasgow’s independent music continuum, and very much its own thing, the confluence of four inspired individuals, playing out proudly.

Hyacinth registers a number of changes for Spinning Coin: personnel changes, geographical changes, a new context, an ever-changing world outside. ‘We’ve had loads of experiences since releasing Permo,’ bass player and vocalist Rachel Taylor says. ‘We’ve toured a great deal, grown older, grown closer to each other, two of us experienced moving to a new country, all of us turned 30. It’s reflected in the music because we’ve put a lot of heart into the music. A lot of time and a lot of energy.’
