Wired to Earth - Tin Spirits

Wired to Earth
Wired To Earth is the stunning debut album from Swindon Prog rockers Tin Spirits, featuring former XTC guitarist Dave Gregory.

Released "Grounded in prog’s 70s stylings but a nod to darker climes.” on the band’s own VIBROLA label, the album is marketed by Esoteric Recordings’ new front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. Fans of Dave Gregory, (one of the most original and inventive guitarists the UK has ever produced), will find him in scintillating form on this new release. The album comprises four original compositions, along with a cover of the Genesis classic 'Back in NYC', a heavy hint as to some of the influences at work here. With its complex arrangements, ambitious scale and outstanding musicianship, Wired To Earth channels the spirit of 1970s Progressive rock, yet it remains firmly anchored to the present by strong melodies and irresistible hooks. This is Progressive Rock with impeccable pop sensibilities, and it provides a fittingly rich and varied backdrop for Dave Gregory's superb guitar work. His trademark blend of psychedelic '60s jangle, '70s rock riffing and new wave angularity has never sounded more compelling or vital. However, the band is far from a mere star vehicle for the ex-XTC man. With song-writing duties split four ways, this quartet is about four musicians brought together purely by their love of making music.

The band was formed in 2008, when guitarist Daniel Steinhardt invited his friend and musical hero Dave Gregory to come and jam with The Hi-Fidels, a Swindon-based trio made up of Steinhardt, bassist/vocalist Mark Kilminster and drummer Doug Mussard. An instant connection was made, and what began as four people getting together to play covers for their own enjoyment was clearly destined for greater things. Two and a half years on, fresh from supporting Marillion in front of 3,000 people at the Marillion Weekend 2011 festival in Port Zélande, Netherlands, Tin Spirits have delivered one of the most exciting Progressive Rock releases of the year so far.
