Spectrals – Extended Play EP

Louis Jones, the musician behind Spectrals, presents his debut EP entitled Spectrals Extended Play. The EP is a collection of new and previously unreleased songs. From the town of Heckmondwike, ten miles south-west from Leeds, Louis is softly spoken with a shock of ginger hair. Brought up on a mixture of 60 and 70s soul, Motown and doo-wop, Spectrals’ influences include Phil Spector (hence the name), Diana Ross & The Supremes, The Isley Brothers, as well as garage rock. Having previously released singles with Captured Tracks (Dum Dum Girls, Wild Nothing, Ganglians), Suplex Cassettes (Teeth!!!) and Tough Love Records (Health, Male Bonding, Becoming Real), the Spectrals Extended Play shows a progression in Louis’ music. Recorded completely on analogue in a local studio, there is a notable difference in the production on the EP and his previous bedroom-esque recordings.
