August Artist of the Month: Spirit Is The Spirit

August Artist of the Month: Spirit Is The Spirit

Congratulations to Spirit Is The Spirit, The Deli KC's August artist of the month!

With lush arrangements, compelling rhythms and an indie pop accessibility, Lawrence group Spirit Is The Spirit has found wide success since its debut EP Mother Mountain, released back in early 2011. Since then, the band has signed with The Record Machine and has played at the Middle of The Map Festival twice. In May, the six-piece launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to acquire a van to tour around the country, and is currently putting together rewards for all of their supporters. They hope to begin recording a long anticipated full-length album in the fall.

Spirit Is The Spirit promises that its upcoming shows and music will only get better while the band explores more adventurous ideas in both live performance and writing. While Mother Mountain did not involve all six of the members in the process, the next album promises to involve each member in each step of the process.

Spirit Is The Spirit is:
Austen Malone
Noah Compo
Wayne Zimmerman
Josh Landau
Brook Partain
Danny Bowersox

And here's the music video to the band's song "Pillows," available on the 12" compilation Secret Handshakes, a collaboration between The Record Machine and Golden Sound Records.
