Back in 2009, Spectrals began as the solo project of Louis Jones, who played every instrument on the earliest singles released through Captured Tracks, Tough Love Records, Underwater Peoples, and Moshi Moshi. Some time later, Jones enlisted his brother Will on drums. 

“A Heartbeat Behind” is the latest single from Spectrals’ new album, Sob Story, which Slumberland Records will release on June 18th, and the track is quite simply finely crafted power pop along the lines of Elvis Costello, Big Star, and others – and we’re not just talking about the music, the lyrics pop with wit and an experience beyond Louis Jones’ years.
