Posted up in Bellingham, Washington, our roots come from friends, islands, small towns, playing loud, an old band called The Cat From Hue, running around in the woods, blowing things up, and working odd jobs. We've had some help along the way, cause why DIY when you can do it with friends?
Spirit Award
Spirit Award
Spirit Award’s debut full length, Neverending, out on October 6th, houses momentum and starkness. The Seattle three-piece pushes and pulls the ten songs with staggered bright darkness and a massive sound. Sprawling, stereo guitars puncture out from a driving bass/drum foundation. While Spirit Award is aptly capable of generating catchy psych moments, there seems to be no calculable formula to their writing style. Vocal sections dipped in effects shape them more like an instrument, putting the bass in the role of lead guitar. Moments of Neverending point to influences of early New Order and Can, baiting you with a hook then leaving you droning to a krautrock beat.

Spirit Award credit the death of a family member, anxiety, a robbery, and the ending of a relationship for the record’s pensive, yet hopeful look into the future. Through all this the band continued working on the record over the course of two years, which is why it garnered the name, Neverending.

Neverending was recorded with Jack Endino (Nirvana), and Eric Corson (Perfume Genius, Ceremony), Connor Birch and GG Reynolds (Sleater-Kinney).
