After eighteen months in the studio, Spector have emerged with quite a different sound. However, this is in no way a criticism; if Enjoy It While It Lasts is the excitable, crowd-pleasing indie child of the band, 'All The Sad Young Men' signals them becoming more mature and a bit moodier in their writing, which is mirrored in the dark, dubious settings for the video. The track is a fantastically raw mix of superb guitars and drums, intertwined with some intriguingly catchy electronic riffs.
“'All The Sad Young Men' is one of the tracks that took us to get the longest to get right because of how much it meant to us.” says vocalist Fred Macpherson. And after listening to the song, we agree that this was time well spent.
