'Spit' is Runaway Nuns’ sophomore album. The album is an aggressive and confident garage rock firestorm. The band felt that it was time to do what they do best which is to dive head first into the raucous music they grew up listening to. True to this ethos most of the songs on this project barely run over three minutes and pulse with energy of five possessed humans on a mission.
The eleven tracks were recorded in July 2019, high in the mountains of Tulbagh, Western Cape, at Fisaasbos Studios. Singer and songwriter, Sean Baron turned 25 during the recording of the album and the band drank for seven days straight to combat the freezing weather and resulting flu.
The aggressively performed takes were recorded without click, allowing the band to adjust to the natural grooves in each of the song’s passages. The result is that these tracks capture what it’s like to be at a Runaway Nuns live show; and that, is a good thing.
'Spit' finds songwriter Sean Baron focussing his lyrics internally, with darker and more honest results. Many of the tracks are written as if he’s having a conversation with himself, probing, doubting, and questioning previously held beliefs and ideas. These are conversations that listeners are invited and encouraged to take part in, which is what sets this songwriting apart from much of the band’s earlier work.
