Spectrals, the U.K. power-pop duo of brothers Louis and Will Jones, have shared their easy-to-love new album Sob Story, streaming in full below. Produced with Chet "JR" White, bassist and one-time producer for Girls, the LP features single "A Heartbeat Behind," which SPIN's Chris Martins described last month as "cooly spit-shined" with "rollicking guitar riffs and snapping drums." The full-length's other 11 tracks trade in similarly lean hooks, nimbly navigating from lo-fi slacker anthems to sweetly smoldering torch songs. 

"Our mantra while recording was always, 'Make it exciting and cut the fat,'" White says in a statement. "Sob Story is the outcome of that and I, personally, could not be happier with the results."

Sob Story will be released on June 18 via Slumberland Records.
