Spector bassist Tom Shickle gets naked in new video ‘Bad Boyfriend’ – watch

Band are also set to play one off show in London next month

Spector have posted the video for their latest single ‘Bad Boyfriend’ online.

The clip, which you can watch above, sees battered and bruised bassist Tom Shickle curled up naked on a playing field, before his evening is recounted backwards.

‘Bad Boyfriend’ is released on June 8.


The track follows previous single ‘All The Sad Young Men’. It is the third song to be taken from the forthcoming follow up to Spector’s 2012 debut album ‘Enjoy It While It Lasts’. 

Of that track, frontman Fred Macpherson said: “‘All The Sad Young Men’ is one of the tracks that took us the longest to get right because of how much it meant to us. I’m pretty sure it’s the best song we’ve written, and its honesty plays a big part in that.”

Late last year Spector unveiled ‘Don’t Make Me Try’ – the first track to be taken from their as-yet-untitled forthcoming second album. That track was produced by Dev Hynes, aka Blood Orange.

Since releasing the first Spector album, MacPherson also recorded backing vocals for Mutya Keisha Siobhan’s debut single ‘Flatline’ – the first output from the original Sugababes line-up.

Release details for Spector’s second album are yet to be announced.

The band are due to play Tufnell Park Dome in London on June 11. It follows on from their recent sets at The Lexington and The 100 Club, as well as their performances at Live at Leeds, The Great Escape and Liverpool’s Sound City. Tickets for the show are on sale now. To check the availability of Spector tickets and get all the latest listings, head to NME.COM/tickets.
