Despite only being officially formed in recent years, the Chipping Norton duo Cassels have swiftly established a prominent name for themselves in the DIY scene. With two critically received EP’s under their belt and from sharing
stages with the likes of Beach Slang, Tall Ships and Milk Teeth, it’s no surprise that the group have been promptly snagged up by Big Scary Monsters, the independent label that is home to some of the best contemporary artists within the UK. The bands debut full length, Epithet - is an album that is sure to open a few eyes to scene so often overlooked and a release that perfectly captures the tone and ethos of the DIY scene.
Boldly dubbing themselves "the loudest live band in the U.K.," gnashing trio Youth Man stand in sharp contrast to the croony "B-Town" indie rock bands like Peace and Swim Deep. Their brand of punk leans heavily towards the weirdos (not the Weirdos) of early California hardcore, in which bands like Fear weren't too afraid (or too unskilled) to throw in an odd time signature.
