Spectres of Love

Welcome to Spectres of Love, a world of lonesome outsiders, haunted dreamers and sexually charged rock'n'roll. Denizens of dark romance and filmic atmos, thrown together by a shared lust for shared lust for primal swamp and garage rock, doo wop, gospel blues and 60s pop, this new trio features Mikelangelo (Black Sea Gentlemen, Tin Star) on lead vocals and electric guitar; MD (El Dinero) on bass & vocals and AJ True (Zombie Ghost Train) on drums & vocals.

With tremolo guitar set to stun, electric bass prowling, and drums rumbling like thunder, Spectres of Love create a rich sonic landscape for the unmistakable voice of Mikelangelo. Debut single Man Cave heralds the arrival of the group in no uncertain terms. Recorded at Zen Studios with Geoff Lee (Boy and Bear, Frenzal Rhomb), produced by Myles Mumford (Kim Salmon, Rich Davies), featuring Jon Creenaune on Saxophone.

The trio consolidates decades of individual and collective experience around the globe on stage, record and film, from major festivals, awards and critical acclaim in Australia, NZ, UK, Europe, US and Canada. Expect a debut album from Spectres of Love in 2017. Meanwhile be assured, "When love comes a knockin' at your door, it's not a social visit that's for sure."
