Spring Offensive announce the completion of their debut album 'Young Animal Hearts' with the release of an exclusive album track stream 'The River'.
'The River' was inspired by the dark murder ballads of old English folk and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. It's a simple, menacing song, with a building and bubbling noise base that eventually breaks away into something bleakly triumphant. It's about an extreme response to betrayal.
Since being voted Oxford BBC Introducing 'Band of the Year' (2012) Spring Offensive have been play listed on BBC Radio 1 and supported Local Natives, London Grammar, To Kill A King and Stornoway.
Scheduled for release in early 2014 the band will self-release their debut album having turned to their fans to crowdsource the funds to complete it. Their PledgeMusic campaign took just one week to reach 100%. The campaign was picked up by the Guardian in it's Top five: weirdest crowdsourcing offers, thanks to their EUR5k offer to get yourself kidnapped by the band!
