Copenhagen quintet Spine of Man produce a vein of guitar-pop with an ’80s, starry-eyed appeal. Specifically inspired by bands of the era like Roxy Music and Fleetwood Mac, Spine of Man seamlessly transition between sparse moments of piano-laden elegance and more expansive pop, with jangly guitars and touches of synths. They will be releasing their debut album this May, and if “More Than You and I” is any indication, it will be full of easy-listening and melodic pop with a nostalgic sort of yearning.
Per the band, the track “deals with the search for meaning and spiritual guidance. The song follows two lovers on a seven-hour car ride as they discuss these themes, and it’s really about how diverging believes can tear lovers (and people in general) apart.”
“More Than You and I” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2019’ Spotify playlist.
