How getting shut down by the cops resulted in SPiN’s new sound

Philadelphia based pop/rock band SPiN have established themselves through touring, licensing their songs to TV/Film, charting on hot AC radio, a #1 song on iTunes Charts, lots of blog buzz and music videos (Over 14.5 Million YouTube Views). But now the band is rolling the dice and changing their formula on their first full length album in years.

Their new single, “Too Late” is the third single from their brand new album, “Make Me Move”. A departure from their usual alternative rock style, this new album embraces the pop/electro/dreampop side of the band, incorporating some noticeable 80’s influence.

Early in the writing process for the new album, the band was confronted with daily visits from the Philly PD who continually issued fines and eventually shut them down in favor of a new disgruntled neighbor who had a proclivity for complaining about the volume next door. Drummer, Lou Chudnofsky says, “it’ll take a lot more than the cops and one a**hole neighbor trying to run us out of our studio to stop us from making music!”

To circumvent the problem, the band reduced the sound volume by using electronic drums and synths, giving the album more of a pop flavor than other projects. The music video for “Too Late” has perhaps the strongest 80’s influence on the album with the visuals telling a dark, sexy story about the innevitable end of a relationship. Watch here
