As part of Independent Venue Week Bootleg Social presents
Since forming in 2014 in Oxfordshire Cassels have played Glastonbury, 2000 Trees and possibly more dates in Europe than the UK. Over the years they have developed a sound characterised by a maelstrom of erratic instrumentation and punk-inflected vocals. For Cassels, music is about authenticity. Together they embody the spirit of punk, even if their sound stretches the boundaries of any genre. It seems that the world will be hearing a whole lot more from this precociously talented pair. Cassels predicts to make a big splash in the future.
