Spector have dropped a brand new EP.
Titled ‘Reloaded’, the surprise release features four tracks produced by the band themselves, including lead effort ‘Even When You Pass My Way’ which was given a first spin on BBC 6 Music earlier this week by Huw Stephens.
“Having always been an under rehearsed indie band struggling to perform quite ambitious pop songs (and usually stifling them in the process) we decided recently that we were now mature/old enough to write songs we actually knew how to record,” explains frontman Fred Macpherson.
“This was helped a lot by the addition of (our second!) French drummer Nicolas Pi and Shaun Paterson on bass, who’s played with everyone from Baxter Dury and Jamie T to Les Incompetents. It’s a cliché, but touring this year was the best we’ve ever sounded. Our dear departed Tom Shickle works in fashion now which is where he belongs, and commutes to Paris while we continue to commute to our rehearsal space in Manor House. As for the songs there’s a couple from the top and a couple from the bottom. Tenner, which we’ve been playing for years, Love Will Do Your Head Right In which is one of my favourite we’ve ever worked on, and Even When You Pass My Way which I wrote for someone else but they politely declined. A blessing or a curse?”
Spector are following up the EP release with a sold out Christmas show at London’s Dome in Tufnell Park next week. They’ll be supported by The Ninth Wave and Wooze.
