As is the mark of many great songs, “Never Fade Away”, new from UK band Spector, works on multiple levels. The track plays both big (large passes over simple chord progressions, dynamic building rhythms and instrumentations) and intimate (lyrical content, you feel like you and you alone are privy to sentiment and desire that is revelatory but tightly guarded by its author.) “Never Fade Away” sums up to a great expression, eruption, explosion of emotion and feeling. The moment is pivotal and important and the music plays to that notion perfectly.
