‘Honestly’ — Spyres — Single review

Through introspective, developing lyrics, Spyres lay bare the downfall of a relationship on brand-new track, ‘Honestly’. It’s got a more tender, indie ballad sheen to it than their previous single, ‘See Through You’, which was super-fierce and punchy. This fresh piece exposes a wistful, softer side to the four-piece and I’m very much here for it.

It’s the second offering from their pre-EP campaign; the evolving, teen-angst-exploring ‘Dear Diary’ is a wildly addictive monologue wrapped up in big, bold riffs and drums, and it’s due to land on 12th August. It’s a collection of extracts that the four have penned together, while growing up as a band. 

They’ve been on course for a meteoric rise for some time now and things aren’t remotely slowing down. Spyres have received huge support from Dork, Alt Press and Jack Saunders, while they played TRNSMT, Isle of Wight Festival and even a supporting slot for The Snuts in 2021. Does it get any cooler? There’s no question that they’re one of Scotland’s most exciting and ready-for-greatness bands on the scene. 

So, stop what you’re doing and enjoy spinning ‘Honestly’. You’ll want to be following Spyres on their socials, if you aren’t already — they’re on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and they always have loads of news to share.
