London-based Cold Specks is the brainchild of Canadian singer-songwriter Al Spx, who earned the group their 'doom soul' tag following their 2012 debut 'I Predict a Graceful Expulsion'. Now, they're back with their second offering, 'Neuroplasticity', for which they have now unveiled a new single entitled 'Abisisto'.
