Spies finally dropped their debut album 'Constancy' recently after making us wait through several years of radio silence. The group will celebrate the album's release in The Button Factory on December 14th with support from Royal Yellow.
In anticipation of that special show the band have released the album's fourth single Watchman which sees the band further exploring their passion for synths and mood.
As singer and lyricist Michael Broderick asserts, “Watchman is about someone close moving away. A lot of the songs on the record deal with various emotions tied to this theme and out of all of them Watchman is probably the darkest. It deals with the anger and resentment that can often surround losing someone this way."
This live video for Watchman was directed by Sam Edwards and was filmed during a series of shows the band played in August in The Workman's
Club and The Islington in London as well as features some more intimate shots from the bands rehearsal space.
Change, as Broderick explains, is a recurring theme within the album. “Our attempts to remain constant in an environment that is inevitably transforming. I wanted the songs to journey through a process of coping (and not coping) with change and the different emotions that are tied to that process.”
