People Like People Like You

Spokes - People Like People Like You

'People Like People Like You' is the stunning debut record from Manchester quintet Spokes, released in 2008 on their own Everyone Label imprint, it is being reissued by Counter Records.

Spokes are originally from the rolling hills of North East England, which perhaps explains the rustic feel of their reverb-soaked, violin-coated sound, one that has been compared to Canada's Arcade Fire.

People Like People Like You is already causing great excitement in the independent press receiving 'album of the week' status on Boomkat and glittering reviews on Don't Panic and Angry Ape. Their ambitious live performances combine field recordings and accidental noise with a delicate but powerful 5 piece band.

The opening track "We Like To Dance and Steal Things" opens with a beautifully arranged instrumental passage that builds and escalates into a tumble of crescendo and tempered euphoria". While this stand out 'single' has received prime-time airplay on BBC Radio, 'Sometimes Words Are Too Slow' explores a larger template with its wailing strings and marching drums. 'End Credits/Loveletter' ends the record with genuine moment of improvisation; a solitary piano recorded without realising the tape was still running, opening a door onto the private world of Spokes.
