The Moth Boys are back...
Spector have returned with ‘Untitled In D’, the first single to be taken from their new EP. Check it out below.
The London band, who released their second album ‘Moth Boys’ in 2015, premiered the track last night – the first to be taken from forthcoming EP ‘Ex-Directory’.
They’ll also be making their live return next month too, with a show at London’s Omeara. You can buy tickets for that here.
Describing the track, frontman Fred Macpherson said: “Untitled In D’s been burning a hole in Spector’s pocket for a little while now. I wrote the bones of it pretty quickly then Jed came through and channelled the ghost of John Frusciante on guitar and we knew we were on to something.

“After the sheen of our first two albums it was exciting capturing something simple and irreverent – the sound of us playing in a room rather than playing in a computer.”
The EP is set for release in January and will also features three other tracks in the form of ‘Wild Guess’, described by the band as ‘irresistibly melancoholic’, along with the ‘high tempo eighties pop’ of ‘Fine Not Fine’, and ‘Local International’, which is billed as ‘the grown-up sibling of Moth Boys’ Kyoto Garden and Decade of Decay’.
In 2015, Spector also found an unlikely fan in the form of football legend Stuart Pearce, after he attended an album launch show at Camden Barfly.
“He’s a fan and had brought his wife and a few mates down. We asked him if he’d like a copy of ‘Moth Boys’ and he said he already had it. We talked about a show we did in Rome, how we were strong, how we’d grown”, Spector said of the meeting.
