After the announcement of ‘Don’t Make Me Try’ it was concluded that the celebrated return of indie-rockers, Spector couldn’t be stronger. Due to the immaculately beautiful new single, ‘All The Sad Young Men’, however, it seems all expectation of this four-piece’s return has been blown out of the water. It’s time for 2015 to be renamed the year of the Spector.
Veiled in mystery and spiked with retro electro-pop is the comeback track to top everything 2015 has offered us already: ‘All The Sad Young Men’.
While the definitive vocals of frontman, Fred Macpherson, droll “all the miserable girls/all the sad young men”, the electronic backbone of this track seemingly sounds as if it was plucked directly from the golden-age of music. A time-warp has been created and Spector have managed to transport us back to the heart of the 80’s.
Creating a song so strikingly perfect with radiating beauty poises one question: is this as good as we’re going to get from the London lads, as their ‘difficult’ second album release looms? If ‘All The Sad Young Men’ is anything to go by, it’s safe to say the future looks brilliantly bright for Spector.
