Spectrals' debut single 'Get A Grip' is the opening track from the debut album 'Bad Penny'. The single will be released on October 10th, with the album being released on October 17th, both through Wichita.
The video for Spectrals' relaxed summery tune was filmed in the equally sunny stunning Yorkshire countryside, with lead singer Louis jamming with his guitar on moorland and down by a river.
Spectrals is based in Leeds. While it is the solo project of 21-year-old Louis (vocals; various instruments), in live shows shows he has the support of a backing band and for his debut album his brother Will played the drums. Spectrals has cited his influences as The Style Council; The Rolling Stones; The Ronettes and Elvis Costello.
Bad Penny, the upcoming debut album, was recorded with the help of Richard Formby, who has previously worked with Telescopes, Wild Beasts, Hood and Spectrum. There are to be eleven original songs on the album, including Get A Grip and a song called 'Peppermint'.
