‘Fine Not Fine’ follows ‘Untitled In D’ in previewing the new collection, ahe track is full of cutting lyrics, most notably: “I know scum who sold their stories, some of your best friends are Tories”.
Speaking of the track in a press release, vocalist Fred MacPherson says: “’Fine Not Fine’ came from a session where I panicked I wasn’t writing enough songs so tried to finish ten in a week. I think I only got to two but they both ended up on this EP. This one was a stream of consciousness inspired by the more self loathing corners of sad twitter - looking at the state of your life a third of the way through and realising it’s just a veneer or an unconvincing brave face.
“A Spector listener (I don’t really feel comfortable with the word fan) once told me our lyrics were good because every line could be an Instagram caption. In which case they’re going to love this one. It’s also our fastest song to date for some reason - faster than ‘Chevy Thunder’ which was 180bpm. Too fast if anything.”
