Spectrals EP release & Tour Dates

Spectrals may not be the most well-known band around at the moment but expect that to change very soon. They have long been heralded as one of the most exciting new bands in the UK and their career is now starting to take off. Their stylish brand of short and sweet guitar-pop songs is a sure fire hit for fans of American bands such as Real Estate. Their blissful, dreamy sound has attracted lots of attention and they have now been asked to support Wavves and Best Coast, as well as releasing ‘Spectrals Extended Play’ EP on the wonderful Moshi Moshi label. Grounded in soul, motown and early rock & roll influences, the EP exudes an authentic 60’s and 70’s feel.

The remaining dates of their autumn/winter gigs are;

4th November – Hoxton Bar & Grill, London W/ Happy Birthday

9th November – Islington Mill, Manchester W/ Wavves

13th November – Constellations Festival, Leeds

29th November – The Ruby Lounge, Manchester W/ Best Coast

30th November – The Glee Club, Birmingham W/ Best Coast

1st December – Scala, London W/ Best Coast
