Spectres are a noise rock quartet combining elements of noise, drone, and, to some extent, post-punk. Made up of vocalist/guitarist Joe Hatt, guitarist Adrian Dutt, bassist Dominic Mitchison, and drummer Andy Came. The group’s ascent to widespread critical acclaim both on record and on the stage began with the 2011 EP, Family. The release cemented their penchant for harsh noise and uncomfortable swathes of distortion, enveloping somewhat straightforward, albeit dark, melancholy pop songs. It was this sound that began to earn the band comparisons to pioneering noise acts such as My Bloody Valentine and the Jesus & Mary Chain.

Further success followed when they released their debut album, Dying, in 2015, an effort that gained further comparisons to acts such as Sonic Youth and A Place to Bury Strangers. They were hailed by NME and The Guardian, which stated the band was among those heralding a “new wave of new noise.”

They up their debut with a collection of remixes entitled Dead, which boasted reworkings from the likes of Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite and Ride’s Andy Bell. They returned in 2017 with their second LP, Condition. Recorded by Dominic Mitchison and mastered at Abbey Road, the album was a devastating assault of overloaded guitars, harsh textures, and sonic experimentalism.

2020 sees the band release their long awaited third record, It’s Never Going To Happen And This Is Why, that features experimental artists Klein, Elvin Brandhi, French Margot and Ben Vince. https://www.instagram.com/we_are_spectres/
