The dreamy Seattle three-piece rock outfit Spirit Award is headed to Boise. Self described as "sprawling" and "stunningly moody," the band achieves a full-bodied, melodious sound despite only three members. The band will play Neurolux Saturday, July 6. They're joined by local rockers Rodeo Screams and Ruff Pups. Tickets are available for $8 in advance on ticketweb.com or at the Record Exchange or $10 at the door.
Frontman Daniel Lyon told Seattle-based radio station KEXP the band's sound depends on the relationship between the vocals and instrumentals. They often don't want the vocals front and center, leaving room for other instruments to play their role.
"Kind of treating (vocals) like an instrument, instead of something that needs to be in the forefront all the time," Lyon told KEXP.
