With two critically acclaimed albums Enjoy It While It Lasts (2012), Moth Boys (2015) and multiple EPs under their belt, Spector are here to uplift your quarantine days, with not one, but two fantastic announcements.

When Did We Get So Normal? is the fourth and final single to be taken from their latest EP Extended Play and will also be part of their upcoming highly anticipating compilation EP Non-Fiction. The airy catchy guitar driven track is a seamless depiction of the band’s new sonic direction on their latest work that questions the normality of life’s daily dull routine, although today’s global crisis definitely adds a new layer to its lyrics.

Speaking about the track, frontman Fred Macpherson said:

In such abnormal times it feels strange to be releasing a song called ‘When Did We Get So Normal’. We wrote it back when everything in life was starting to feel a little too repetitive and routine, which feels a long time ago now. It’s inspired by the pathos of spending too much time with the same people, getting bored of seeing, hearing and eating the same things as everyone else, looking in the mirror and realising your life is no longer the adventure it once felt like. I guess we’re all in the same boat now though. Even the sexy interesting people are staying in watching TV and waiting for packages, so maybe it’s a good soundtrack to the new normality. I’ll never complain about Cornwall again.

Non-Fiction will be released on 29th of April and will combine tracks from the band’s last three EPs Extended Play, Reloaded and Ex-Directory.
