Fold over jacket with dust sleeve in poly bag. Artist and title sticker on the bag. Seattle-based three piece Spirit Award are known for their unique mix of sprawling stereo guitars, stunningly moody soundscapes and a driving drum and bass foundation.

While Spirit Award are aptly capable of generating catchy psych moments, there seems to be no calculable formula to their writing style.

Comprised of Daniel Lyon, Chris Moore and Terence Ankeny, the trio's mutual goal in creating a sound with grit and authenticity is clearly evident throughout their music.

Following on the heels of Spirit Award's 2018 album "Muted Crowd" (produced by Trevor Spencer [Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes]) and a 13 city tour through Germany and Austria the band returns exceedingly focused with the two-song single "Currency".

"Currency" is comprised of a pair of songs that circulate around the idea of wealth and greed.

The track 'Mountain' asserts the message to the 1% that "in the end you will die like the rest of us, just bound to your golden chains".

The piano-driven track 'Is It Enough?' is a bit of a departure from Spirit Award's previous work.

But its spacey guitars and sparkly keys give it a slight psychedelic treatment. Share It Music is a Seattle nonprofit label that gives a portion of proceeds to a charity of the band's choice.

For "Currency", Spirit Award has chosen to donate to Mary's Place in Seattle, an organization that "provides safe, inclusive shelter and services for women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness."
