Debut album for Spector
3:21pm Sunday 27th May 2012 in What's On
Spector release their eagerly anticipated debut album ‘Enjoy It While It Lasts’ on August 13 through Fiction /Luv Luv Luv Records.
Fred Macpherson, Christopher Burman, Thomas Shickle, Danny Blandy and Jed Cullen have created a modern day classic. Fred told the Gazette: “Pop music is the perfect medium for turning pain into entertainment. As this dawned on me over the last year, our album evolved into the most exhilarating outlet for the bi-products of romance, heartbreak, nostalgia and social monotony.
"It took five band members, six months and seven producers to make this record, and I've never taken anything more seriously in my whole life.”
