Neu Pick: Cassels strike out from the crowd on ‘Flock Analogy’ 

Cassels strike out from the crowd on ‘Flock Analogy’

Grungy Oxford duo have a bright future ahead of them - their new Too Pure release is today’s Neu Pick.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Cassels.

Oxford brotherly duo Cassels don’t hang about. Snarling, grunge-influenced noise is this pair’s go-to, and they’re churning it out at a rate that belies their tender age. On ‘Flock Analogy’, they’re upping the fear factor; letting all their inhibitions loose.

A guttural new cut, it’s a world away from the more sombre reflection of recent single ‘Ignoring All The Tunnels And Lights’. The most frustrated, bruised and up-for-a-scrap they’ve ever sounded, it builds on Cassels’ already ample potential, pushing them ever-closer to the big leagues.

‘Flock Analogy’ is set for a Too Pure Singles Club release on November 25th - get stuck in below.
