Philadelphia indie group Spelling Reform continue to evolve on their new LP No One’s Ever Changed, out 18 November, 2016 on Black Rd Records. Building off their 2015 EP Diving Bell, the band deliver more of their eclectic, distinctive sound – snarling pop rock, indie rock and power pop plus somber sing-alongs and melodic guitar solos.

“This feels like a fall song. So let’s play it on repeat.” – Impose
The album’s eleven tunes are anchored by singer/songwriter Dan Wisniewski’s feverous lyrics and urgent vocals, which have drawn comparisons to John Darnielle, Dan Bejar and Woody Allen (for real).
Recorded in a single, donut-fueled weekend with producer and Hop Along guitarist Joe Reinhart at The Headroom in Philadelphia, No One’s Ever Changed makes for a fascinating listen, with well-formed songs, energetic delivery and varied instrumentation. For fans of The Weakerthans and The Pixies.
