Simon Spire: No Solid Ground and Four-Letter Words US reviews

Review by Jeffrey Sisk for the Daily News (McKeesport, PA), January 5th, 2012: No Solid Ground EP (advance EP from the upcoming album Four-Letter Words):

Solid Ground” (selfreleased)
✰✰✰1⁄2 — New
Zealand native Simon Spire
is a star in his homeland,
and now the talented Kiwi
is looking to make his mark
in America. The five-track
“No Solid Ground” EP is
his first U.S. release and
gives every indication that
Spire has what it takes to be
a star.
The radio-ready indie
pop platter gets off to a
fast start with “Liberate
Your Love” and “Knocking
On an Open Door,” and
Spire is almost as effective
on the title track and “The
Blue Pill.” An unnecessary
remix of “Knocking On
an Open Door” brings the
19-minute set to a close,
but there’s enough here to
make me want to hear more
from this kid. (JS)
