'Spoons' is the collaborative EP from Shy One and Kwam, named after a meeting in an East London Wetherspoons where the duo decided to join forces for a project. Having worked together sporadically in the past, this is the first time the two artists have recorded together for a specific project. Recorded in one day and spread over six tracks, Kwam's lyrics explore various themes on certain aspects of London living and society at large over a diverse selection of Shy One's trademark, rough and ready productions.

The songwords go 'BAKED BEANS, BAKED BEANS, BAKED BEANS, EVERY NIGHT GIRL' and it's a weedy, whiny, skippy little thing.
If this sounds sarcastic, it's not. I could go on about the brilliantly wonky harmonics or how it would sit well in any DJ set as a palette cleanser but sometimes it's best just to take things at face value, yeah? Archipelago Soundsystem stan account
