UK shoegaze band Spotlight Kid‘s 3rd studio-album “Ten Thousand Hours” was originally released on CD last year, but is now given a proper Vinyl-treatment by Saint Marie Records!Β  Melodic noise-pop with a steady yet playful backline drenched in guitars and soothing synths, with Katty Heath’s (ex-Bent) lush vocals on top. Their sound is vast, washing over you like a wave of warm water on a sunny day of spring. Warning: highly addictive!

The Special Limited Edition of this might be gone by the time you read this, but if you’re quick on the trigger you might just snag one.. This comes with a bonus 7″ of the band covering Slowdive‘s “Joy”, previously only available on the 3xCD compilation Static Waves #3 on Saint Marie Records.

*LIMITED TO 250 COPIES ON 180g WHITE VINYL

*THE SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION INCLUDING THE 7″ IS STRICTLY LIMITED TOΒ  30 COPIES!

Spotlight Kid is an English five piece who make reverb-soaked noise-pop of the finest order, with layered harmonies & swirling distorted guitars which at one time may have sat happily grinning among the Creation Records roster of the 90's. 'Ten Thousand Hours' is their 3rd album and latest offering.

Every track is soaked in melody and atmosphere layering Katty Heath's voice, much bolder and upfront this time, against pounding drums, bass, shimmering guitars and keys. Produced by Todd Howe who can also be found playing guitar in The Boxer Rebellion. He has helped add a coherent sense to the whole album, which was written and recorded in several studios, including their own basement studio in Nottingham over last year.

Ten Thousand Hours is a huge step forward from the previous album but instantly recognizable as the same band - loud, uplifting, melodic and noisy.
