Watch the Wistful Dream of the SPECTRES “Northern Towns” Videos

SPECTRES make post punk for the working class. Their newest release, the Provincial Wake 7″, is firmly rooted in punk, but it still weaves dreamy melodies into the angst and frustration underlying it all. These two new tracks, “Provincial Wake” and “Northern Towns” will whet the appetite of post-punk fans who’ve been waiting for this Vancouver band to throw them a bone – we’ve followed Spectres for years now and this 7″ has everything we need to hold on to until they come out with a new full length. It came out Oct. 18th on Sabotage Records, and you can order it here. Today we’re excited to share the video for “Northern Towns” with you, and watching it feels like sinking into a warm, comforting memory just long enough to ease the pain of it being gone. Enjoy a taste of the north below and make sure to support one of our favorite hometown bands by adding this 7″ to your collection…
