Spectoral nimbly blends accessible pop with textured trip-hop, hip-hop and electronic, resulting in cutting-edge music that pushes their genres forward. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of peers including Sampha, Golden Vessel and Royksopp, Spectoral has achieved national press and radio, including Triple J and Unearthed airings.

Just in time for the 2019 holiday season, Spectoral collaborated with Martiln and visionary sketch animator Julien Truebiger to bring you one of the year's trippiest and most colourful music videos: CELESTIAL. The single has so far been aired on thirteen Australian FM stations and landed a feature publication in Hip Hop Headquarters online magazine. (YouTube: 'Spectoral')

In 2018, Spectoral's music achieved national radio and press, premiering with SCENESTR nationally, airing on stations including SYN, Radio Adelaide, Southern FM, Plenty Valley, 3WBC and Bondi Radio.

In October 2018, Spectoral was aired on Triple J several times thanks to his signature reinterpretation of DMAs' "The End" for the Triple J Unearthed remix competition. That same week, he released his highly anticipated sophomore EP, "An Incorruptible Dream", working with notable Australian heavyweights Tim Watt and Tim McArtney (Golden Features, Muto, GRMM), Ben Feggans (The Kite String Tangle, Ngaiire), Sebastian Ivanhov (Alius), Robin Waters (Darling James, Ella Hooper) and Klaus Hill (Pnau, Kilter, Ministry of Sound Australia).

The EP's lead single, "Movin' On", was playlisted by official Spotify curators two days after release, included in a plethora of curator playlists, and given spot rotation on FM stations nationally.

In February 2019, Spectoral released his first official music video for second EP single, "What You Want", moodily inspired by the famous Humans Of New York photo blog. Uploaded directly to Facebook, YouTube and Instagram TV, the music video has been watched over 10,000 times.

Nimble, astral visions on this. Paints such a lush mood with these synth layers.

Title is apt as Spectoral goes full planetarium with this track, projecting some starry synth patterns for you to get lost in.

Speccie absolutely goes for it over the top of those hyper-colour synths. He's got no chill at all but that's kind of the strength of the song.
