Making vicious, emotionally mature art rock that’s as deeply layered as it is visceral, SPQR are a band as likely to break your heart on record as they are to tear your face off live, with frontman Peter Harrison’s nuanced songwriting and impressive vocal range possessing an emotional depth seldom found in such a young artist. The trio of weird-rock misfits are equally at home delivering tight, staccato grooves as they are expansive hip-shaking choruses,
with rhythm section Bex Denton and Jack Sanders providing the perfect foundation for Harrison’s freaky guitar colourations and his intensely passionate, crystal-clear voice. Pin-balling erratically from hellbent rock to masterfully adept emotive soundscapes, theirs is a sonic arsenal littered with diversity, be it tender balladry, lurching epics, or out-and-out primal anger.
