Spector To Introduce Us To ‘Moth Boys’

Published on

London quartet Spector will follow the singles ‘All The Sad Young Men’ and ‘Bad Boyfriend’ with their second album ‘Moth Boys’ on August 21 on Fiction Records. The band, led by enigmatic frontman and lyricist Fred Macpherson, produced it with Dev Hynes, Duncan Mills and Adam Jaffrey,

Spector Bad BoyfriendSpector, also featuring guitarist Jed Cullen, Danny Blandy (keyboards) and Tom Shickle (bass), have refined and matured their sound since their arrival on the scene around 2011. After touring that year with the Killers, Florence + the Machine and others, they were on the BBC’s Sound Of 2012 critical list, and their first album ‘Enjoy It While It Lasts’ went on to debut at No. 12 in the UK.

The artwork for the new album is a 2009 picture of the defunct Berlin night club Rechenzentrum from Von Bleiben – a photographic series documenting the “morning after,” by German artists André Giesemann and Daniel Schulz. “We got very excited when we first saw André and Daniel’s photo,” explains Macpherson, “as it immediately evoked similar feelings to the music and words on the record. We’re very honoured that they’ve let us use it.”

Physical copies of ‘Moth Boys’ will also include a new work by one of Fred’s favourite poets, Sam Riviere, inspired by the album’s lyrics and themes.
