I’ve had a bit of a Britpop renascence this weekend. It started by seeing Shed Seven play a blinding nostalgia fuelled gig at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday, supported by the excellent Chris Helme (ex frontman of the Seahorses).
If that wasn’t enough mid nineties reminiscence, Britpop stalwarts Cast have released their first single in over a decade. Fresh off the back of the 15th anniversary gigs celebrating their debut album “All Change”, they have recorded a new LP “Troubled Times” via PledgeMusic. The album will have a physical release in the new year whilst the digital version was available to plegers in November.
The single “See That Girl” has the familiar tone of the bands previous work and jangly guitar sound of vocalist, John Power’s former band, The La’s. Whilst not breaking any new grounds, anyone who is nostalgic for 60s pop or the Britpop sound will enjoy this.
