SPILT’s latest single – STILL CRAZY – is out on Jacaranda Records today.
STILL CRAZY represents the label’s fifth immersive audio release in quick succession, and the midway point in a blockbusting summer of weekly track drops from the Jacaranda stable, the track not only provides a raucous, rasping fanfare for an incredible debut year from SPILT, but also serves as a strong signal of the immersive-first label’s intent.
Working with the best of Liverpool’s local talent, STILL CRAZY is the result of SPILT’s collaboration with Bill Ryder Jones – co-producer of the stereo mix – combined with Jacaranda Studios’ immersive audio technology to create new music that pushes the boundaries of sonic design while forging new release and monetization models.
Jacaranda Records Capomaestro Ray Mia said:
“Quite a brutal schedule the Label team and the band and artist manager are keeping to. It’s impressive seeing the team gel and work it all out, not all smooth!! But we’re all focused on making it work for the band and getting it out there independently. It’s not been easy as we’re having to sprint a marathon to keep up the pace with the sheer avalanche of creatives the guys are kicking out. Every track has its own vibe, blending traditional tech with outer limit stuff in a cohesive form – with a singular voice. They’ve got vision, style, a bloody panache… it’s damn rare and cuts across all ages…”
“There’s a load of material to come, we’ve got a treasure trove of assets, and the growing fanbase are blown away… it’s about discovery this, it’s not about getting to the top as fast as we can, they’re going to get there and stay there forever…it’s about authentic growth that can’t be replicated as its built on energy and extreme talent. The guys don’t leave anything on the table, every song, every performance is convincing and an emotional and staggering testimony to an overwhelming act of defiance…”
“The guys played a gig in Birkenhead, Future Yard put on by the brilliant Bido Lito folks, and the small crowd gathered were treated to an afternoon blast of what SPILT do, and it just makes me smile… they’re infectious, they are so fucking good it’s laughable… they are legendary…and they so need to be seen and heard to be truly believed. Something like this has not been seen in a long while, and it’s 100% once in a lifetime shit… and there will be folks that disagree and sure they’re entitled to it… but once you see what I can see what they’ve got planned – for years and years and years to come… I can’t help but smirk… we’re with them every step of the way.”
“The pride I have with being able to work with them and be on this journey with the Label team is a joy, everyone’s there by design and function… and we’re doing this The Jacaranda way… no one’s got that, no one’s doing that, and SPILT do what they do, and how they do it… and it means a hell of a lot to me to say and do it this way. No quarter, balls deep… take it or leave it, but it cannot be ignored – it’s the intensive combination of talent, technology and originality, it’s painting pictures with sound… look away if you want to, but you’re missing what Runcorn has to offer…”
There is much more to come, with upcoming breakthrough releases by innovative indie pop outfit SHARDS scheduled to drop in September alongside a fresh tranche of SPILT material as both acts build up for the winter touring schedule.

Artist focused, forward-thinking and expert in deploying innovative technologies and techniques through every stage of the recording, release, distribution and commercialisation cycles, the label works with a diverse range of creatives and performers to maximise the impact and returns for their work, all the while re-imagining, re-inventing and re-defining what impact and return means.
