Have You Heard? Spinning Coin - Raining On Hope Street

Spinning Coin - Raining On Hope Street

There’s an atmosphere and a mood created by Spinning Coin that makes them sublime storytellers.

Spinning Coin’s double A-side single ‘Albany’/’Sides’, released last year, was a sorrow-drenched affair, but one with an undoubted emphasis on finding hope amongst the rubble. Even from a name alone, its follow-up ‘Raining On Hope Street’ seems to tread the same line.

The track showcases Spinning Coin’s ability to hide a heartbreaking narrative under a sugary pop melody more clearly than ever before, and though ‘Raining On Hope Street’ is set on top of a pretty standard indie-pop make-up and structure, there’s an atmosphere and a mood created by Spinning Coin that makes them sublime storytellers, and it hasn’t wavered yet.

The atmosphere is one carved down rain-sodden Glasgwegian streets, and written in the knowledge that, no matter how deep you have to dig, hope will always present itself. It’s this determination that makes Spinning Coin so invigorating.
