Spirit Award shares "Mountain" from upcoming 7" single Currency

It's new music to love!

We’re brimming with excitement to share that Seattle indie-psych trio Spirit Award have released a new single “Mountain,” now available to stream everywhere. “Mountain” is the A side of the band’s upcoming 7” vinyl Currency - out this May. We're proud to say that the release comes in partnership with us, Share It Music, and that Spirit Award have chosen to share a portion of proceeds from Currency with Mary’s Place a fellow Seattle-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to "provide safe, inclusive shelter and services for women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness." To that end, Currency's two tracks revolve around the ideas of affordability, greed, and the wealth gap. Spirit Award are coming off their recently released album Muted Crowd, which drew high critical praise.

"Share It's vision of what they want to do for bands, people, and giving back to the community was very exciting and inspiring,” explains vocalist Daniel Lyon. “We are thrilled to be putting this out on a nonprofit label, and giving 25% of proceeds to Mary's Place. We named the release Currency because the two songs center around greed, the struggle to have affordable housing, and the large wealth gap that we see/feel personally in Seattle, but also in cities throughout the country and beyond. As artists working in a city with prices ceaselessly increasing, we are often forced to work many hours at multiple jobs in order to maintain the ability to afford to live, making it ever harder to find time and support as artists. This art is the 'currency' that matters most to us, and we want to find ways to use it to bring positivity to people’s lives.”

In addition to releasing new music, after a stint at Treefort Music Fest, Spirit Award will head out for a stretch of European and Moroccan tour dates in April - all of which can be found here.

Please join us in welcoming Spirit Award to the Share It Music family! 

Bloods offer "No Fun (ft Girls Rock!)"; continue to plot SXSW 2019 and beyond

We are pleased to pass along a smattering of Bloods news as together we wind down 2018 and look ahead to 2019.

To commemorate the 5th anniversary of their acclaimed debut EP Golden Fang, Bloods have re-recorded the EP’s opening track “No Fun” with the help of talented and dedicated members of the Sydney chapter of Girls Rock! The track features new parts from Bloods' own MC, along with Mia Betteridge (guitar), Roxy Tilse (guitar and backing vocals), Charley Barnes (vocals), and Natalie Patterson (guitar and backing vocals). You can blast the track here and get additional info on the collaboration here.

To further recognize Bloods’ swift ascent from Golden Fang’s release in 2013 until now, on the heels of Feelings, and as founding member, stellar bassist, superb co-vocalist, and all-around amazing human, Sweetie prepares to move on from the group, the full lineup will be performing a set of Australian Summer Kick-Off Party shows in December. Details are here.

As they move forward, 2019 will see Bloods return for a second time as a showcasing artist at SXSW (March 10-17), in Austin, Texas. Check out SXSW’s Australian artist preview featuring Bloods here.

In the week following SXSW (March 18-25), Bloods will be visiting LA and Seattle for promo and press activities, so be on the look out for more info on their post-SXSW appearances in those locations soon.

Finally, we are so appreciative and humbled by all the support of Bloods and Share It Music in this our inaugural year. For those compiling and publishing year-end or best-of lists, we’d be thrilled for Bloods' Feelings to be included as one of your favorites in 2018. We can't think of a better way to close out 2018 and launch 2019 together. Feelings album details are here.
