Tell Me If You Like To is the debut album by English post-punk band Spring King, released in June 2016 by Island Records.

Manchester post-punkers Spring King come out swinging on their debut Tell Me If You Like To, with a killer three punch combo of lead single “City, “Detroit and “Who Are You? that leaves your ears dancing on the ropes, anticipating the sweetest of all knockout blows to be delivered to any naysayers that haven’t subscribed to the hype surrounding the affable foursome.

With this trio and standout tracks like “Demons, “Rectifier and closer “Heaven” the result of Tell Me If You Like To is a damn good debut that offers more than enough over its duration to satisfy the wants and desire of their rapidly burgeoning fanbase. 

City is the kind of danceable post-punk party starter that some bands spend their entire careers trying to craft, with its impassioned vocals, angular guitars and simple yet soaring chorus hook making it a perfect fit for rock radio, while remaining raw enough to blast at an indie club night.

Drummer/lead singer/producer Tarek Musa’s howl leads the way on “Detroit, another bouncy, club-friendly rocker with a distinctly British feel that is built around another simplistic but addictive chorus, before “Who Are You? takes a turn towards a slightly darker, grittier sound, before shaking you out of your comfort zone with an inspired saxophone solo, the inclusion of which is one of a number of moments in which you can see a budding art-rock maestro emerging in Musa.

Alongside the aforementioned “Demons”, a more expansive, slower moving number, toe-tapping, live favourite waiting to happen, “Rectifier and spacious “Heaven these songs would have made for a near flawless EP.

Tell Me If You Like To may come off as a little too nonchalant as the lyrics don’t seem to have a lot to say, but most people who will come across this record will be too busy singing and dancing along to really notice or perhaps care all that much what the band is saying, and that fact speaks to the strength of pop-nous they already possess at such a tender age.

With an almost unprecedented level of hype, a string of sold-out headliners and prime festival slots all over the world, Tell Me If You Like To does exactly what it needs to, delivering enough potential hits to ensure that the momentum remains.  ‘Well in, then lads, well in.’

Check out the tracks: “City”; “Who Are You?”; “Rectifier”; “The Summer” and “”Detroit”. 

This LP includes a digital download of the album and is pressed in the UK on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl.
