If you haven’t already heard, British five-piece band Spector are gracing our lovely shores for a night filled with pure indie rock. Presented by both Universal Music Singapore and indie-chic fashion label Topman, these new kids on the block will be playing at Avalon on Thursday, October 4th 2012.

Likened by The Guardian to be “somewhere between Roxy Music and the Strokes, The Killers and Frank Sinatra”, the Londoners are set to unleash their anthemic choruses and catchy guitar hooks from chart-topping debut album Enjoy It While It Lasts.

Expect lots of crowd chanting, hands waving in the air and smiles going round as the Londoners look all but set to take their unique sound to our little red dot, Singapore. Take a listen to singles ‘Chevy Thunder’, ‘Celestine’ and ‘Never Fade Away’ and find that these are no one-hit wonders.

Moreover, Singapore will not be just one of those gigs. Having already played sold out shows at London’s Electric Ballroom, supported Florence + The Machine and played at the legendary Coachella festival, expect a top-notch performance from these guys.

We love Spector that much and we are very much looking forward to that night in the South Crystal Pavilion to embrace the celebration of London indie rock and their attractive sense of style. On that note, we want to spread that love and want YOU to join us on a night with Spector.
