SPECTRALS






















Big fan of Leeds born, Spectrals. You wouldn't be mistaken for thinking this music originated from sunnier dispositions than the north of England, there's something very 60's America about it all. I don't like making this association cos it's like OH HE'S NORTHERN, WHO ELSE IS NORTHERN? ALEX TURNER, THAT'S THE ONE, HE'S NORTHERN, FROM THE MONKEY BAND..THEY BOTH SOUND NORTHERN AND THE SAME...but actually there's a comparable gruff tone, that's where the similarities end. I was reminded more of Belle & Sebastian and Best Coast. The new album 'Bad Penny' drops 17th October and one of the tracks is the humorous 'Big Baby'.
