TUNE Spring Offensive - Bodylifting
"What you're about to hear is one of the best debut albums from an English band that I can think of.” - 405
“If ever an independent record deserved to be listened to, it’s this one.” - God Is In The Zine
‘Bodylifting' is the latest single to be taken from Spring Offensive’s acclaimed debut album 'Young Animal Hearts'.
'Bodylifting' premiered on Radio 1’s Review Show to rave response. Its euphoric chanted choruses, swirling organ and guitars and driving grooves perfect for the airwaves. Yet the song still encapsulates Spring Offensive’s particular style of dark, introspective song-writing, lyrically tackling the hyper-sensitive state of one fearing being abandoned by a lover. The song is indicative of Young Animal Hearts as a whole. An album which places the listener at a heightened state somewhere between joy and despair.
The video for Bodylifting was conceived and directed by Matt Cooper (guitar) and Lucas Whitworth (vocals) of Spring Offensive and depicts the great cinematic underdog sporting story. The band feature as haphazard members of a sports team in training for a momentous and career-defining match-up in front of industry talent scouts.**
