Cassels - Epithet
For Cassels, music is about authenticity and in Epithet, their debut full-length LP, they've got it in spades. Fuelled by the injustices of everything from modern society to the hypocrisy of small town England, they are young, driven and vastly intelligent, refreshingly unafraid to shatter the status quo.
They're antagonistic and brash, but more importantly, they challenge the norm, both musically and lyrically. If you're after something simple, pedestrian and safe this isn't the record for you. But for those of you who like their music challenging, unpredictable and with lots to say, then Cassels might just be your new favourite band.
