We've scouted the boys of guitar-pop outfit Casablanca for a fair while, since their days as Lo-Fi Culture Scene. The band recently announced their debut single 'Yes', out this week on the newly founded Party Politics label. Listen to that track below, along with its B-side 'Natalie' - arguably better than the A-side.
The new incarnation of first appeared back in February, and unlike many of today's new bands - unafraid of their past and moreover, happy to embrace it. They emerged with a clutch of demos - including 'Yes', which was subsequently polished up.
'Natalie' is similarly polished, cradled by melodic guitar sounds and vocal hooks, accompanying a killer singalong chorus. The band have a single launch gig at The Old Blue Last in London tonight for free, with support from Howl and special guests.
