SWEET SPINE is an exciting new three-piece band making a splash in South Carolina comprised of Fox Haynes (19) on guitar and vocals, Taylor Priola (20) on bass and Brannan Crook (22) on drums. Channeling the sound of energetic rock mixed with hauntingly serene melodies, the unsuspecting young trio have captured the attention of the East Coast scene and well beyond with their high energy live performances and their breakout song, “Darkness.” Officially released in July 2023 after catching fire on TikTok, their breakout hit has launched them into a bona fide indie phenom and the brightest new faces in the Shoegaze and Alt-Rock space. With new music, bigger shows, and out-of-the-box collaborations on the way, it might’ve started with “Darkness” but it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the country sees the light.
