It’s raining in London right now, so why not escape with a quick trip to Morocco soundtracked by some sad indie-rock? Well if that sounds right up your street, Spector have got your back.
Dropping the video to “Fine Not Fine” today, we’re taken on a Moroccan adventure by frontman Fred Macpherson, ending with the instantly iconic clip of him on a camel. Soundtracked by the melodically melancholic track, it’s a visually stunning video that’ll have you booking a holiday in no time. After you’ve finished drying your tears to this song.
Speaking on the song’s conception, Fred says: “’Fine Not Fine’ came from a session where I panicked I wasn’t writing enough songs so tried to finish ten in a week. I think I only got to two but they both ended up on this EP. This one was a stream of consciousness inspired by the more self loathing corners of sad twitter – looking at the state of your life a third of the way through and realising it’s just a veneer or an unconvincing brave face. A Spector listener (I don’t really feel comfortable with the word fan) once told me our lyrics were good because every line could be an instagram caption. In which case they’re going to love this one. It’s also our fastest song to date for some reason – faster than ‘Chevy Thunder’ which was 180bpm. Too fast if anything.”
Taken from their “Ex-Directory” EP which came out earlier this month, the visuals are a beaut accompaniment to the song and a welcome break from grey London. We’ve mentioned that Fred’s also on a camel, right?
