Doom Soul. That’s how Cold Specks describes her music, equal parts downcast goth and Deep South gospel. An intriguing figure, Cold Specks is the stage name of Al Spx, which seems straight forward enough except Al Spx is also a pseudonym. She was born and raised in Ontario, but is based out of the UK scene where she debuted, which makes her stand out on both sides of the pond. Watch “When the City Lights Dim” before you miss out on the chance to brag to your friends that you were into Cold Specks before they were.
