Sparing — Old Dreams SDR-060


Sparing is an alternative rock band, from Raleigh, North Carolina. Drawing influence from the late 90’s and early 2000’s rock scene. Aiming to bring back the aesthetics and ethos of the Drive-Thru Records era. With heavy inspiration pulling from bands such as The Early November, Finch, Home Grown & Hawthorne Heights. Sparing find’s themselves carving a path all their own.

Recorded in January of 2021, “Old Dreams” finds Sparing doubling down on what made their demo stick. Personal lyrics with ear-worm choruses, heavy riffing – paying homage to influences like Superheaven and Jawbreaker. With tracks like “Colorblind” utilizing catchy pop punk instrumentals, overlaid with Smashing Pumpkins inspired guitar harmonies, the music suggests a return to a golden world before things were black and white.
