“Spiral” by Pacific

“Spiral” by Pacific: the new single by the critically-acclaimed indie-pop group, Pacific, and is a welcome change to established indie standards. 

The track greets us with powerful vocals accompanied by the dramatic piano pattern providing a much-needed intensity and the feeling of suspense for the listener before progressing into the verse.

It seems that the band purposefully left out the idea of ‘full blast instrumentation’ and left us with a feeling of space and allowing the song to breathe. As uncommon as it is, it allows the meticulous details to surface and please the ear throughout the song. 

The chorus picks up the intensity by adding more instrumentation. The unusual chord progression throughout the chorus cannot be dismissed, as it surprised me on every occasion, creating an additional feeling of intensity and makes the listener wonder where the song will progress next. 

The production is remarkable, with so many elements being audible and creating a very pleasant mix. Pacific certainly have a hit under their sleeve and their current endorsements by the likes such as Manchester United are certainly well-deserved. 

“When we were writing this song, we wanted to capture how in life, days can unknowingly pass with all your time being spent working towards an end-game of someone else’s making. Importantly, we remember we have the ability to control our own futures and that’s what the song is about – overcoming that spiral that we can easily fall into.”

The track will be released on the 11th of June on all streaming platforms. Certainly give it a listen!
Furthermore, keep an eye out for their live dates, especially for music fans around Newcastle upon Tyne.
