Seattle-based Spirit Award are known for their unique mix of sprawling stereo guitars, stunningly moody soundscapes and a driving drum and bass foundation. While Spirit Award are aptly capable of generating catchy psych moments, there at times seem to be no calculable formula to their writing style. Spirit Award’s latest record Lunatic House was in part a collaboration between Daniel Lyon (Spirit Award) and Producer Trevor Spencer (Father John Misty, Valley Maker) and Drummer/Engineer James Barone (Beach House). The idea was to create a vibe through the record; aggressive, noisy, and pulsating. Spirit Award have found success receiving critical acclaim from tastemakers such as Billboard, Paste, KEXP and Daytrotter, among others.
