Through the Sparks - "Rome" (stream) (Premiere)

PopMatters Staff

On “Rome”, Birmingham, Alabama's Through the Sparks conjures up a mighty indie-rock groove, something with the swagger of Spoon when it's strutting its stuff

Through the Sparks might bill itself as Birmingham, Alabama’s answer to Big Star, but the veteran group's archival track "Rome" -- featured on the upcoming rarities collection Invisible Kids -- offers up a more exuberant vibe to go with intuitive power-pop hooks. On "Rome", premiering here on PopMatters, Through the Sparks conjures up a mighty indie-rock groove, something with the swagger of Spoon when Britt Daniel and co. are strutting their stuff. Invisible Kids is due for release on 21 January 2014 on Skybucket.
