Spector indulge in some FOMO in ‘Half Life’

With it being 4 years since Spector released Moth Boys, 2019 has finally seen their return. After returning with ‘I Won’t Wait’ back in June, the London quintet have dropped their second single of the year, ‘Half Life’.

Their new synth-driven rock single sees the Dalston boys indulge in some serious FOMO. “‘Half Life’ is about the fear of missing out on your own life” revealed frontman Fred Macpherson. “The worry that you’re losing touch with people, places, culture, no longer recognising yourself in the mirror, the constant tick of the clock in the background. It’s about wondering how much time you have left.”

Yet, in true indie disco spirit, the band still wanted to make the music “upbeat and celebratory” even if the song is actually a sad one. “There’s nothing better than a group of people just losing it, all singing along to something a bit miserable,” Fred says in explanation of the track’s indie disco homage. Therefore, in ‘Half Life’ we have the formidable juxtaposition of upbeat guitar riffs, sublime synth melodies and the melancholic lyrics. Especially with regards to the synths in the track, it is lovely to see the band indulge in their love for vintage Depeche Mode.

Spector’s 2019 singles are taken from a new EP, which will be out this Autumn via their own Moth Noise label.

Not only that, but Spector have also announced a massive UK tour this October and November. With stops all over the country, the London quintet will be ending the tour in their home city, at the Bethnal Green venue Oval Space on November 13th. For that date, click here to grab a ticket.
