Spiral Stairs

Founding member of both Pavement and Preston School Of Industry, Scott Kannberg, is back with his solo dealio, Spiral Stairs. He’s going to release his first album under that name for eight years, ‘Doris And The Daggers’, on 24 Mar.

“I guess I’ve been writing songs for a while now”, ponders Kannberg. “I like hearing echoes of things I love in the music that I make. Writing music doesn’t come easy to me – it’s hard to write a song that’s good. But our memories slowly escape us as we get older, and in songs you kind of relive those moments, the things that matter”.

The album will feature guest vocals from The National’s Matt Berninger and Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew. Oh, and Grandaddy’s Jason Lyttle, who appears on first single ‘Dance (Cry Wolf)’. You can listen to that here if you want:
