Seattle-based three-piece Spirit Award are known for their unique mix of sprawling stereo guitars, stunningly moody soundscapes, and a driving drum and bass foundation. While Spirit Award are aptly capable of generating catchy psych moments, there seems to be no calculable formula to their writing style. Comprised of Daniel Lyon, Chris Moore and Terence Ankeny, the trio’s mutual goal in creating a sound with grit and authenticity is clearly evident throughout their music.
Following on the heels of their acclaimed 2018 album Muted Crowd - which centered around ideas of homelessness, greed, and the wealth gap - Spirit Award has returned exceedingly focused with the two-song single titled Currency, released by Share It Music in May 2019. Fittingly, the band has chosen to support Seattle’s Mary’s Place through this partnership.
