Following on from the success of their two releases and busy live schedule in 2021, Cucamaras are ready to take a step up in 2022, with their new single, ‘Winner’s Chapel’. The track forms part of their EP, ‘Soft Soap’, which will be released later this year.
The post-punk four piece, formed of Josh Hart, Olly Bowley, Dan McGrath and Joe Newton have developed a strong interest from their local scene in Nottingham, selling out one of the city’s prestigious venues, The Bodega, in October 2021. They have also developed followings in cities such as Liverpool and Manchester to name a few.
Taking inspiration from acts such as Fontaines D.C., Parquet Courts and Car Seat Headrest, Cucamaras’ latest EP demonstrates the expansion of the band’s direction, with tracks that display their writing and performance ability.
Working through the pandemic, they collated an impressive exhibition of tracks, with ‘Death of the Social’ and ‘Safe Bet’ receiving critical acclaim from BBC Introducing and Radio 6 Music,
Radio X, DIY Magazine and Sirius XM. Signing with Exag Records and Marshall Live Agency, the band will be making appearances across the UK and Europe throughout 2022.
The brand new ‘Soft Soap’ EP provides a peek into the future of Cucamaras, with further releases expected later in the year with accompanying shows to be announced
