London-based band worth the wait

Club Scene with Sam Cherry

The Wedgewood Rooms

A sold out crowd greeted London-based band Spector as they arrived at the Wedgewood Rooms.

Firmly setting themselves up on the music scene with their debut album Enjoy It While It Lasts, the group didn’t disappoint.

It was a Monday night during half-term, as lead singer Frederick Macpherson quickly pointed out, but it didn’t change the atmosphere as several hundred gig-goers sang every word of their favourites, including Chevy Thunder and Celestine.

Although Frederick was quick to point out he had got one of the verses wrong, the crowd didn’t mind or notice as he charismatically carried on.

The only slight nuisance was the wait. Support acts Swim Deep and Luls were entertaining, but with doors opening at 8pm, the band didn’t make it on stage until gone 10pm, which was a long wait.

But don’t let that sway you, they’re a joy to watch when they do get there. Expect big things from these boys.
