This Is Fake DIY

New Music// Casablanca

Having already played live support for acts such as The Maccabees and Foals, this quintet’s future already seems predestined.

Forming while still at school, Casablanca have been together for a while now, but having given up on a lo-fi approach, the band have rebranded themselves with a glossy indie sheen, capable of embedding itself on every radio playlist within sight.

Returning with a brand new single ‘Yes’, it’s instantly clear that the five-piece have strayed away from the conundrum of tri-chord guitar fuzz – trading it all for danceable drum beats and swooning choruses. Changing with the times and pacing themselves ahead of the pack, they’re obeying the forthcoming craze of dance inciting grooves and hook laden jams.
