Vancouver's Post-Punks SPECTRES "Tell Me" about Hindsight

Published in Underground News Written by

Artoffact Records announces the November 5th release of Hindsight, the new album by SPECTRES, and releases new single “Tell Me.”

Founded in Vancouver in 2005 by vocalist Brian Gustavson, SPECTRES is commonly cited as one of the bands responsible for kicking off the renewed interest in the post-punk sound in Canada. The band spent the pandemic year off in the studio, fine tuning their craft and recording new tracks for Hindsight. The last track on the album and lead-off single, “Tell Me,” was covered by Stereogum upon release. Writer Ryan Leas noted that “Tell Me” “finds [SPECTRES] moving a bit further up the [retro] timeline, delving into some deep New Order vibes. If that kind of thing works on you the way it works on me, then you will probably think “Tell Me” is a banger.”

There’s a new Canadian talent to keep an eye out on, and Apricity is the word. Her love for musical theatre speaks about her style. Her experience of working in front of a camera during her days as a television presenter in Scotland translates well past the MTV generation.

After moving to Canada and meeting Toronto-based Juno-nominated and platinum awarded music producer Thomas McKay, they worked on developing a style and have a brand that works. In an interview by Jenna Melanson for CanadianBeats.ca, she said, “My stage name is taken from an old English word which means 'basking in the winter sun,'” which I thought was very appropriate for a Canadian artist.
