Spector return with Reloaded, a surprise four-track EP produced by the band themselves.
Reloaded arrives hot on the heels of their earlier four-track EP release Ex-Directory. The new EP includes "Tenner", a live staple for Spector that was initially released as a standalone single back in 2016.
Speaking about the new project, frontman Fred Macpherson explains, "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. 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?”
The Dome in London will host Spector's sold out Christmas show on 4 December, with support from WOOZE and The Ninth Wave.
