Spesh’s ‘Teflon’ is some straightforward post-punk with a poppy new wave sensibility. “Over the course of ten songs,” the band says of their upcoming LP Famous World, they “spiral through a jangly, multi-hued sonic multiverse that recalls the esotericism of late Morrissey, the Psychedelic Furs’ cheeky wacko-pop and Blur at their most stoned.” These guys aren’t exactly reinventing the wheel here, but this is a very well-done take on a genre that many have unsuccessfully tried to emulate. The guitar tone feels like an updated take on the amps, pedals and effects that defined the work of players like Johnny Marr and Robert Smith. Behind that, a traditional post-punk drum beat works effortlessly with a solid, pumping bass line to keep the track grounded. And of course, how could we forget about those sweet Julien Casablanca-style vocals that carry the song from beginning to end. This is a neat song from a promising band. Check out ‘Teflon’ below!
