I first got into The Duke Spirit after seeing their video being played at an American Eagle Outfitters and immediately fell in love. The lead singer, Leila Moss, looks a bit like Debbie Harry of Blondie, cute, blonde and extremely stylish. Their music is like a somewhat calmer version of garage rock with amazing vocals, husky, yet surprisingly delicate, wafting over.
I heard of them back in 2008, which is about when they released their last album, Neptune. I played that album to death. Their first album ain't bad either.
Anyways, this is all a big set-up to the point of this post...THEY'VE RELEASED A NEW SONG!!!!!!! This morning, at about 8 AM, AudioPorn Central informed me of the new song, "Everybody's Under Your Spell," accompanied by a video. While they seem to have gone more mainstream in their rock style, it's still a great song and all of the best parts of the band are still there, especially the great vocals.
If you like the song, the band made it as a free download on their website.
I will definitely be the first in line to buy their new EP, Kusama on December 7. Well...digital line, since it's exclusive to iTunes.
Below is a recording of "Into the Fold," my personal favourite.
