Spector release new single ‘Bad Summer’

Lifted from their new album ‘Now Or Whenever’.

With their brand new album ‘Now Or Whenever’ landing on 1st October via their own label Moth Noise, Spector are giving us the latest taste of what to expect, sharing new banger ‘Bad Summer’.

Describing the track in their own words, the band say, “Written in the august rain, on a summer’s day like this one. For when every night feels like a honeymoon and every morning feels like a funeral.”

Speaking about their upcoming album, Fred Macpherson adds, “In some ways this is our first proper guitar album. And the first album we’ve made in one studio in one sitting which is crazy. Next year will be the tenth anniversary of Enjoy It While It Lasts which feels like forever, but I think it’s taken us that long to work out what’s good about us and how to capture it. Which kind of makes Now or Whenever both a sequel and a reboot. Had last year unfolded differently, maybe this would be our big depressing opus, but when positivity’s taken away you have to create your own, and somehow that’s left us with our most upbeat record yet.”

“When there are huge changes happening on a global level and absolutely nothing happening on a local level, people ask you how you’ve been, what you’ve been up to etc. and there’s not much to say that they don’t already know,” Jed Cullen continues. “So we start talking and writing about the past and the future as if to escape from this paradoxically mundane/extreme present. Then you step back and you realise that the strange conditions of the time are pervading your conversations and it’s coming out in the music in ways you didn’t expect.”
