Bio

Combining his trademark future-soul vocals with textured production techniques that borrow from the likes of Boards of Canada to Röyksopp, Spectoral has spent the past few years honing his craft with a plethora of notable industry heavyweights. Readying a sophomore EP with names such as Tim Watt & Tim McArtney (George Maple, Flume, Touch Sensitive), Ben Feggans (The Kite String Tangle, Ngaiire), Sebastian Ivanhov (Alius, Blake Rose), Robin Waters (Darling James, Ella Hooper) and Klaus 'Heavyweight' Hill (Pnau, Kilter, Ministry of Sound Australia), Spectoral is positioned to kick increasingly ambitious goals in 2018.

Continually receiving acclaim from fans, venues and agents for the quality of his live act, the Melbourne-based artist has enjoyed a tonne of radio spins across his home country, airing consistently on indie stations from FBi to SYN, Radio Adelaide, Plenty Valley FM and Bondi Radio to name a few. By mid 2017, he'd charted on Hype Machine and was featured in their Spotify playlist, was invited as a guest for multiple on-air features, television and radio spots with SYN, 1700 and PVFM.

Active on Instagram and other socials (@spectoral) and with monthly listeners in the thousands, Spectoral's rise in popularity among Australian and overseas audiences is occurring under the radars. It’s time this young artist gets on yours.

(((Melbourne: Catch Spectoral live @ Horse Bazaar on June 16th, for a massive Single Launch event!)))

This is like any song with Frank Ocean and Tyler, The Creator together. The synth in the last chorus really brings it up. Very chill track

Very well produced track with intricate synths, punchy drums and delicate guitar!

Smooth slick and catchy with loads of appeal and one of the hookiest hooks I've heard in a while. Great stuff!
