With a strong taste of that Laurel Canyon sound made famous in the ’70s by the likes of Jackson Browne, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and James Taylor amongst countless others, new Melbourne four-piece The Spirit are a beautiful mix of the old and new.

Their piano-driven single ‘Forever Gone’ is a catchy, upbeat track addressing that age-old dilemma made famous by Joni Mitchell in ‘Big Yellow Taxi’: you don’t know what you got til it’s gone.

Having not played a live show yet, the band are hitting Sydney for an intimate shows. With support from Smyth and Hot Spoke, this gig will be a great chance to catch the band in close quarters before word gets out that they’re the real deal.

See them at Goodgod Small Club on Saturday March 15.
