The Truth: The Caress are an alternative three piece combo based in New Cross, South East London, comprising of brothers Tom Easton (guitar and vocals), Ben Easton (bass and vocals) and Sam Easton (drums and vocals). Formed in December 2015, their music is visceral and melodic, with a quintessentially British charm. They draw mainly on influences such as Phil Spector’s Wall Of Sound, ‘60s Girl bands and ‘80s indie acts. Lyrically they try to find the beauty and intrigue in the mundane and grey, through stories of youth, sex, naivety and loneliness. And they play these live shows here:

OCTOBER 18TH DALSTON Shacklewell Arms (w/ The Fontaines)
NOVEMBER 10TH SHOREDITCH Old Blue Last ('Man Up' single launch)
NOVEMBER 17TH DALSTON Shacklewell Arms (w/ Hussy)

Released on September 15th, the 'You Say I Kiss Like A Girl' EP features four tracks which tick all of the above boxes and more. ‘You’re Always Miles Away’ was the first single off the EP with its reverb-drenched tambourine, atmospheric guitars and handclaps inspired by Northern Soul stompers. It was Steve Lamacq's Livener on BBC 6 Music and premiered by Clash who described it as "a coy blast of melodic wordsmithery" over here: http://www.clashmusic.com/news/premiere-the-caress-youre-always-miles-away

Next up to radio will be the brilliantly buoyant opener ‘Man Up’ - released as a single itself on November 3rd alongside a video starring Laurie Kynaston. Or, in The Caress's own words...

"Man Up’ is a short, catchy pop song built on a crisp rhythm section and memorable bass hook with jangling guitars and three part harmonies, inspired by 60s Girl Bands and the works of Phil Spector. Lyrically the song deals with themes of masculinity, commenting on modern society’s archaic ideas of what it is to be a man.

"The accompanying music video, directed by Michael McGlew and starring BBC 2’s Cradle To Grave actor Laurie Kynaston, follows a day in the life of a young man with stereotypically 'unmasculine' characteristics, who becomes aware of, and isolated by, many of the features that have come to define 'laddishness'. This is the second time Laurie, who also plays Johnny Marr in the Morrissey biopic England Is Mine, has collaborated with the band, having starred in the video for their debut self-released single ‘Why Don’t We Take A Walk By The Sea?’ in 2016."

‘You Say I Kiss Like A Girl' is also the fourth release as part of fierce panda’s 2017 EP Club, wherein half a dozen young roustabouts rustle up debut EP releases with the dignified support of Arts Council England. The Caress hereby join a hall of infamy featuring Ghost Suns (released in March), Leaone (May) and Fightmilk (July) peddling their Extended Play wares.
