Toronto jangle pop outfit Ducks Unlimited have released a new track called “Gleaming Spires” off of their forthcoming debut EP, Get Bleak.
The energetic new track comes packed with a driven instrumental line abd jangly guitar riffs, as frontman Tom McGreevy’s smooth vocals take the lead. The track revolves around its lyricism, as McGreevy delivers lines like, “But at the end of everything/ You stood there like gleaming spires.”
“It’s about the emotional energy that gets put into hating a place,” McGreevy explains of the track. “I feel like the manic intensity with which I’ve heard friends sometimes shit on the town they live in is often pretty transparently an exercise in the displacement of issues in other parts of their lives.”
