Sprïng is a new neo-psych band from Vancouver, BC. Their debut album "Celebrations" exists in a lush and dynamic landscape, traversing sonic territory from warm, delicate finger-picked passages to vast, doomy riffage. With a tip of the hat to the British psychedelic movement of the 1960s, they have achieved a cohesive aesthetic all their own.

Biography

The musicians of Sprng have been playing together in various incarnations for more than six years. The band is made up of some of the busiest tour-hardened musicians in East Vancouvers vibrant music scene. Having been instrumental in the success of bands like psych rock quartet SSRIs, and acclaimed indie pop experimentalists Aunts & Uncles, Bleating Hearts and Thee Ahs, the seasoned multi-instrumentalists of Sprng are poised to launch an exciting career bolstered by their previous successes.

As SSRIs, Jo and Elliot self-released a full length album, three EPs and toured across Canada three times. The band received accolades for their explosive live performances and their musically adventurous mix of genres, and were featured on the cover of the Georgia Straight leading up to the release of their acclaimed full length Effeminate Godzilla Sized Windchimes. SSRIs played over 150 shows in including opening spots for renowned international acts (Electric Six, The Most Serene Republic) and festival appearances including the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Olio, Sled Island, Music Waste and Shindig.

Now comprised of four diverse musicians (Kevin and Ridley joined forces with Jo and Elliot in 2012) who work regularly in a staggeringly wide variety of styles, the band has taken a new approach to songwriting, tempering complex arrangements with stripped-down pop sensibility. The heavily processed electronic sounds of SSRIs are joined by acoustic instruments and vocal harmonies, creating a spatial duality that bounces between the familiar and the unexplored.

Sprng's first full-length release, Celebrations, exists in a lush and dynamic landscape, traversing sonic territory from warm, delicate finger-picked passages to vast, doomy riffage. With a tip of the hat to the British psychedelic movement of the 1960s, they have achieved a cohesive aesthetic all their own. The record is set to be released in early 2014, with tours of North America and Japan to follow.
