〶 Spirit 〶

 

‘Spirit’ grooves ominously as Clark cries “The Spirit is upon me, let me speak. Who is hungry, who is hungry? Let them eat.” – later, declaring through a wailing filter: “I will make you believe”.  The track quickly resolves into James Brown funky drummer fills and a falsetto chorus before a mind-melting vintage synth break lifts it higher.

Propelled from the rear by a fuzz-riffed rhythm section, maraca-accented bass line, sci-fi synths, organ & drums blending Krautrock, woozy folk, blues & hypnotic psychedelia with compelling dark energy reverbed male lead and backing vocals.
