Spoon are an indie rock band formed in 1993 out of Austin, Texas, by singer/guitarist Britt Daniel and drummer Jim Eno. The band also consists of Eric Harvey on keyboard, guitar, percussion and backup vocals, and bassist Rob Pope who also plays guitar, keyboards and backing vocals. They have been described as primarily an indie rock band but also incorporate elements of rock and roll, pop and post punk. In 2001 the band released their third LP Girls Can Tell, and it was the breakthrough they were looking for. The album sold more records than their previous two combined and was followed up a year later with Kill the Moonlight, which was equally successful. Since then further releases have proved even more fruitful with 2007’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga making number 10 on the billboard 200 and 2010’s Transference coming in a at number 4, selling 53,000 copies in the first week. Appearances on The Late Show With David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and Saturday Night Live have signified their growing reputation, and their continuation as a class indie rock act.
