Surfacing: Caan

Ou Est Le Swimming Pool tragically and abruptly came to an end last year, following frontman Charles Haddon's suicide. Aside from the smashing single 'Dance The Way I Feel', I never quite got into their brand of synth-pop. Caan is the new project of former Ou Est Le Swimming Pool member Caan Copan, unveiling a more serene synth-pop sound. Listen to the gloriously hypnotic new single 'Now Hear This My Friends' below.

I can't be the only one to have thought of James Caan or 'Star Trek' - although that's actually "KHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!" but same difference/pronunciation. Right? Anyway, back to this Caan and y'know, music.

As I mentioned in the opening paragraph, his tracks have something of a serene sound but there's often a fiery undercurrent in the vocals. Here's hoping that Caan continues to show such passion and talent on his forthcoming material to match this superb debut single.
