Time can be a funny thing, sometimes you never know how something will work out, what an idea will become, or just what ends up repeating and what doesn’t. Take for example The Spoons, the 80’s new wave group is considered one of the most influential Canadian acts of the time, releasing anthemic pop tunes, recording a movie soundtrack, multiple Gold albums, and being featured on the first episode of Much Music ever released, the band has had its share of successes.
Fast forward to the present and the group is still gaining recognition for it’s music videos, even in a time where Much Music itself does not play many of themselves. Returning to the studio after a recording hiatus, the band has recently released their seventh studio album, New Day New World, garnering attention not only for the way they continue to connect with their infectious music, but also with the story telling narratives of the videos that accompany their songs.
The Spoons music video for their latest single ‘The First & Last Time’ has been receiving praise from film festivals world wide, even earning the videos director a Best Director award for a music video at the Indo Global Film Festival. The first in a 3 part mini series, the video focuses on a paranormal aspect and begins a story that carries through 3 videos, 2 of which have yet to be released.
The Spoons are also one year away from celebrating their 40th anniversary since starting the band, so when better of a time then now to return to form, especially with the continued rise of the Retro 80’s movement, to bring back those classic do do do’s you remember so well!
