Bands to Watch #23: The Cazals

By on Sunday, 10th August 2008 at 3:27 pm

From the outside, this five-piece have all the makings of your typical indie band. They reside in London and have been mates with the ultimate grunge icon Pete Doherty since they were wee nippers. But take a closer look at the Cazals and you will find a band with altogether more depth.

“Every song on the record is a true fucking story,” front man Phil tells NME. “We’re not one of those bands who just bash out a song.”

Think Bloc Party, Simian Mobile Disco and The Rakes. These guys have spiky guitars, lo-fi drum loops and gravelly sung lyrics about life, love and losing their minds.

Cazals are signed to uber-trendy French record label Kitsune, famous for their electro and dance offerings. And it shows. Their debut album What Of Our Future is packed with punchy, disco-beat tracks that open your eyes and minds.

You can catch the lads on a tour bus making their way around Europe.

Dust off your synthesizer and say hello to Cazals.
