He’s the guitarist who inspires a whole bunch of our favs! Johnny Marr kicked off his career with The Smiths and now has a flourishing solo career! He worked in many bands like Modest Mouse, Electronic with his pal Bernard Sumner from New Order and even produced tons of bangers like Billie Eilish‘s ‘No Time To Die’ with Hans Zimmer and from The Cribs. Now, Johnny Marr’s Fever Dreams Pt 1-4 are so real that he unveiled a new single and plans to release an EP in October along with a new double album later.

Listen up to ‘Spirit, Power And Soul’ now. We can guarantee this will haunt you for the rest of your life. “Now it’s starting to dawn/What in the world’s going on?/I seen some shimmering things/Seen a vision in things,” he sings in the second verse, questioning the weird vibes we had in the past years like his British compatriot Damon Albarn.
The dark comes and goes and with music, we can overcome the bad things! Johnny Marr is on fire! This new track is kind of a mix between Primal Scream’s Screamadelica and Psychedelic Furs melodies. Of course, we hear the genuine sounds of The Smiths as he can’t deny his musical roots. On top of that, there are some elements of Northern Soul we catch on! We’re so addicted!
