Simon Spire Reviews – Four-Letter Words – Press

Praise for Four-Letter Words from the April 2011 New Zealand album release:

Spire is a musically diverse talent with a Midas touch for great hooks. The album is a clean, intelligent, no-nonsense expression of pop-rock and its sincerity connects – M2 Magazine, New Zealand

Ambitious, enthusiastic, and without a hint of cynicism, Spire’s upbeat attitude is vital in an industry that has become reluctant to invest in new talent…Spire’s lyrics are personal and confessional rather than edgy, with themes of self-discovery and reaching your potential…The music radiates a feelgood, easy-listening catchiness with the added punch of rock guitars. – The New Zealand Herald/Canvas

Indelible hooks – The New Zealand Herald/Timeout

Gloriously vulnerable and emotive…Four Letter Words‘ sound is very versatile with comparable moments to Owl City, Ryan Adams and Sufjan Stevens, putting it on par with some greats in the alternative music scene. – muzic.net.nz

Another confident slice of radio-friendly pop – Stack Magazine
