The notorious Berlin band released their third LP "Phantom Of Liberty" Aug 5 on Bureau B and is rightly compared with icons of seventies Krautrock such as Neu! and La Düsseldorf, with a tight and driving sound, yet they are still somehow unpredictable. Hardly any other band understands how to mutate tiny musical nuances into volcanic eruptions like they do. Camera is a motor running at full throttle, where an explosion could occur at any second.

Sonic Cathedral released this statement upon signing the band in 2014 and they've been living up to it ever since, yet keeping it real and remaining modestly in the underground scene.
"Spectres are genuinely one of the most exciting bands I’ve seen in a long time. Certainly the loudest, the rawest and the most abrasive. You know those ridiculous articles that crop up every now and again asking if guitar music is dead? Then that gatekeeper guy from Radio 1 who comes up with weird algorithms to work out what music people should be listening to will say that, no, guitar music is on its way back. And the end result is that we end up with the airwaves clogged up with landfill like Royal Blood (the Lidl Black Keys). Well, Spectres are proof that guitar music is very much alive, kicking and finding influences in all the best places: first album My Bloody Valentine, ‘Sister’-era Sonic Youth, Swervedriver’s Creation days desert-gaze, A Place To Bury Strangers’ total sonic annihilation and Royal Trux’s squalid, filthy noise on ‘Twin Infinitives’, to name just a few."
