Spyres Share New Track, ‘Lost Without You’

Fresh from their recent tour with Canadian rockers Softcult,  Spyres are gearing up for the release of their debut EP with the effervescent new single “Lost Without You”. It’s their most relatable release yet. 

Flexing their songwriting prowess, Spyres have succinctly summed up a crucial part of adolescence on “Lost Without You” –  when your best friend gets a new partner and the dynamic shifts, leaving both friends to navigate their new paths separately for the duration of that relationship. This is where the delicate harmonies of Emily Downie and Kiera McGuire pack a huge punch as sparkling guitar lines bring about a sense of nostalgia and optimism. Speaking on the new single, Spyres explain:  “this friendship will last a lifetime, probably much longer than the relationship that has caused this disruption. All the friend feeling left behind wants is for their friend to recognise that fact before they get caught up”. Who hasn’t been in this situation before? 

Inking their first recording deal with prolific independent label LAB Records (CRAWLERS, Vistas, Des Rocs) earlier this year, Keira McGuire said “Signing to LAB has really been so exciting! It’s something we’ve dreamed about since we began playing around 4/5 years ago so for this to be coming to life, it’s starting to feel much more real for us and we feel really lucky to have been given this opportunity so early on. It’s great to be on the same label as other artists we have listened to for a number of years such as Abbie Ozard and Hockey Dad. We met Abbie a few years ago while on tour with Lauran Hibberd and we loved watching her sets every night. We also saw Hockey Dad a couple of years ago in Glasgow supporting Courtney Barnett so it really feels full circle now being signed to the same label as these acts we have loved for such a long time.”

Mark Orr of LAB Records said “We have been long time admirers of Spyres on record – and finally seeing them at Live at Leeds in October just served to underline our belief that they’re one of the most exciting young bands around. They’ve achieved a great amount for a band with only 3 songs in the world – so we’re excited for everyone to hear the new music.”
