Howling Owl Records are proud to announce Spectres ‘Hunger’ EP‏

January 23, 2013

Artrocker Unsigned Band of Year Winner 2012

Spectres ‘Hunger’ EP

Limited to 100 12″ vinyl – handmade sleeves & artwork
Released 11th March 2013

Spectres are a very uncompromising band. For three years now, they have created music that has driven people out of venues and made their own ears show the white noise flag; but they have ploughed through regardless…and it has been more than worth the pain: people are starting to take notice of Spectres, and the ‘Hunger’ EP shows why.

A definite progression from the 2011 release ‘Family‘, ‘Hunger’ shows the band experimenting with a sound that is often impossible to tame, and steering it towards some harsh beauty.

Following their crowning of the ‘Artrocker Unsigned Band of the Year’ award, the ‘Hunger’ EP saw the band take their visceral live sound into a squat bedroom, set up a few mics among the mattresses, plug in, play and see what happened. The results of which you can watch below in this short teaser

Recorded by members of the blossoming Howling Owl Records family (Oliver Wilde and Dominic Mitchison, Velcro Hooks); ‘Hunger’ somehow manages to knead the squalls of feedback, distortion and noise, whilst leaving room for the vocals to float around at will.

Released on 11th March 2013 through Bristol’s Howling Owl Records, ‘Hunger’ is limited to 100 12″ vinyl, that also comes with a CDR and download code; all housed in handmade sleeves and artwork; as always with Howling Owl.
