MANCHESTER outfit Spokes' debut EP, People Like People Like You, is impossible not to like, people.
The five-piece take their lead from post rockers such as Mogwai and Jeniferever, fashioning grandiose slow-burners that rarely clock in under the five minute mark.
To these they add evocative rustic folk instrumentation as well as background ambience both sampled and incidental to create an album that sounds like an old friend, from the very first listen.
And with the band currently beavering away on a full length introduction, isn't it time you awoke to Spokes?
