The Dreaming Spires bursts fresh out of the box with an enviable musical pedigree. Group members, and brothers, Robin and Joe Bennett formerly played with the influential Goldrush and Danny & the Champions of the World, and toured America backing Mark Gardener of Ride. At the festivals they founded, Truck, Wood and Truck America, they have jammed with everyone from Mercury Rev and The Jayhawks to Garth Hudson of The Band.
The Dreaming Spires released their debut album 'Brothers in Brooklyn' on Clubhouse in June 2012. The album unashamedly celebrates and name-checks the artists, songs and second-hand vinyl the band love - Big Star, Gram Parsons, The Band and The Byrds.
After the success of the debut single 'Everything All The Time', and the follow up singles “Not Every Song From The Sixties Is A Classic” and "Just Can’t Keep This Feeling In", this album fills out the picture of what can be achieved by writing 11 great songs and recording them simply with great playing and harmonies, an exceptional offering from a band who celebrate transatlantic brotherhood in style.
The Dreaming Spires’ debut album has picked up airplay from Spain to New Jersey, as well as from BBC 6 Music, Xfm and Radio 2, and acclaim from all corners of the press, with many calling it one of the albums of the year.
A new album is in the advanced stages of completion and is expected later this year.
