With recording on their third album almost complete, Spectres have decided it’s time for one final look back at 2017’s ‘Condition’, which was acclaimed at the time of release, but largely forgotten about by the end of a year which saw some major changes in the band, with frontman Joe Hatt relocating to Berlin and long-time producer Dominic Mitchison joining on bass.
The ‘WTF’ EP pairs one of the highlights of ‘Condition’ – ‘Welcoming The Flowers’ – with remixes of other album tracks by the likes of Metrist, who melts ‘Dissolve’ in an acid bath of broken techno; Elvin Brandhi (aka one half of Yeah You) and Mun Sing (aka one half of Giant Swan) who turn ‘End Waltz’ into, respectively, a glitchy explosion of sound and a tribal industrial monster; finally French Margot and Silver Waves place a noose of ethereal beauty and bloody-minded sonic terrorism around ‘Neck’.

SUPERB. ESSENTIAL LISTENING. WILL BE TUNING INTO YOUR BACK CATALOGUE TOO 😁 My favourite track is number 4 Unificado. Just glorious. Thank you. Will definitely come and see you live if you come to England. Obviously WON'T be for a while, with all that is happening. Stay safe. Pete. Peter Moore
Really nice album to chill to. I'm so sad that they had to cancel the show at San Diego & the rest of the tour because I was really looking forward to seeing them. "La Maga" is such a chill and beautiful song that I don't ever want it to end. spifferella
