Spinning Coin feel like an update on the gloriously dishevelled yet heartrending indie pop that came out of Glasgow in the '80s and '90s. Following their well received debut in 2016 they return to Geographic for two more examples of their take on the anorak clad sounds of the Pastels, the Shop Assistants and the Boy Hairdressers.

- Raining On Hope Street by Spinning Coin
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 22 March 2017
If anyone is going to be a Glasgow band who can live up to past greats such as the Pastels or Teenage Fanclub it's going to be Spinning Coin. Their first 7" was super sweet and this is just as good. They are drip feeding us slowly with these tunes - one 7" at a time.
Let me tell you about this one. 'Raining On Hope Street' is over in just over two minutes. It recalls the Pastels at their most tuneful and has that beautiful brittleness of the best indie pop. Sean Armstrong's voice is beautifully androgynous and more than anything quivers with the same emotion as that of the Pastels' Katrina Mitchell.
Like their previous single this comes with two sides - two sides of the Spinning Coin. 'Tin' is a boisterous tune that sounds like Orange Juice or Josef K at their most raw and ragged and seems like the sort of thing that will give some drunken aggro to the A side.
If you like indie pop twisted into exciting new shapes you have to buy this.
