SPECTOR’S NEW SINGLE
‘WHAT YOU WANTED’
LUV LUV LUV RECORDS
Fresh from the release of their universally praised debut single ‘Never Fade Away’, the spectre of Spector continues to rise with the release of new track ‘What You Wanted’ on September 19th through Luv Luv Luv Records.
Played and approved by the airwaves’ finest, as well as many a kind word from critics, the London 5-piece’s debut release saw them pack out a sweaty and excitable single launch on their doorstep in Dalston to a crowd of indie luminaries including Florence Welch, The xx and Tom Vek.
At just 23, Fred Macpherson is already something of a veteran. He’s fronted two of the most infamous underground bands to have emerged from London in the last decade: the legendarily rowdy upstarts Les Incompetents, and the doomy experimentalists Ox.Eagle.Lion.Man. For Spector, Fred enlisted friends Christopher Burman (guitar), Thomas Shickle (bass), Jed Cullen (synth and guitar) and Danny Blandy (drums), and together they make a heady mix of the electronic and the nostalgic which sounds totally new and yet weirdly, intoxicatingly familiar. Between them, they’ve cooked-up a new kind of peculiarly English pop; pitched somewhere between Roxy Music and The Strokes, The Killers and Kanye, Sinitta and Sinatra.
‘What You Wanted’ is a perfectly polished, gleaming gem of a pop song, with tender, honest lyrics and an infectious melody
