Lespectre are a five-piece atmospheric dream-pop band from Bristol.

The band began life as an experiment in songwriting for Tom Hackwell (guitar, vocals) and Max Perry (drums) – a vague attempt to create something phonically reminiscent of the dream-like verse of Clarice Lispectre (‘Lespectre’ is an homage to the Brazilian writer).

The full band took shape with the addition of Becky Leach (vocals, keys, violin), Gary Walker (guitar) and Sam Winter-Quick (vocals, bass). The dreamy, atmospheric shoegaze sound of Lespectre was born.
