Premiere: Cassels stream new ‘Hating Is Easy’ EP

Cassels stream debut EP ‘Hating Is Easy’

Fuelled by small-town boredom, these West-Oxfordshire brothers make punk-tinged magic.

West-Oxfordshire brothers Jim and Loz Beck are streaming their debut EP ‘Hating is Easy’ online in full. Out on 6th July via Idiot King Recordings / Big Scary Monsters, the band are now taking pre-orders. Act quickly - there are only 100 physical copies up for grabs.

‘Hating is Easy’ has a stick-and-poke tattoo on the cover, and the music inside is just as no-frills; Cassels make deliciously ramshackle rock. The likes of ‘I Swipe Right’ - presumably a song inspired by popular dating application Tinder - might be fuelled by small-town boredom, but the result is an EP of impressive, punk-tinged magic.

Cassels are off on tour next month. Their upcoming shows are as follows:

JUL
08 Leeds, Nation of Shopkeepers
10 Sheffield, The Washington
12 Strathallan, T In The Park
15 London, The Old Blue Last
31 Derbyshire, Y Not festival

AUG
05 London, The Macbeth
17 Manchester, A Carefully Planned festival
