Spector is a five-piece indie rock band from London, comprising Frederick Macpherson, Christopher Burman, Thomas Shickle, Jed Cullen and Danny Blandy. Macpherson has previously been in Les Incompétents and Ox.Eagle.Lion.Man.

They have been described as "somewhere between Roxy Music and the Strokes, the Killers, Pulp, Frank Sinatra" and have also been described as "reminiscent of The Walkmen mainlined into The Killers’ chugga-train drive".

The band have announced a headline UK tour for February 2012 and have been confirmed as a support act for Florence and the Machine's March 2012 tour.

They've been recently added to the line-up Isle of Wight Festival 2012, playing in the Big Top Tent on Sunday 24th of June. They will also perform at Field Day festival on 2nd June 2012.

**Spector reached the TOP 10 on Kool Rock Radio's Best New Bands list last year (2011) and their singles 'What You Wanted' and 'Grey Shirt and Tie' have reached the TOP 100 of Best Tracks 2011 list.
