The Truth: The Caress are still very much an alternative three piece combo based in New Cross, South East London, comprised of brothers Tom Easton (guitar and vocals), Ben Easton (bass and vocals) and Sam Easton (drums and vocals).
Pulling from their interest in girl bands and death discs from the ‘50s and ‘60s, ‘Breaking Up’ is the second single from The Caress' upcoming second EP. Written with Roy Orbison and Grease in mind, it tells the tale of a couple coming to the end of a hostile relationship. The track's waltz drum beat, vibraphone and prominent percussion borrows liberally from Phil Spector, while the lyric is playful and literate.
This ball of swaggering pop joy is the second single to be plucked from the forthcoming ‘In Technicolour’ EP, which is due late June. The first single was ‘Suffragette Look’ which saw the trio headline The Social and support labelmates Desperate Journalist at Oslo (in Hackney).
‘Suffragette Look’ followed hot on the dainty heels of the ‘You Say I Kiss Like A Girl’ EP which gave the world the thunderous sub-gothic excellence of 'Breakfast With Leather Apron’, which itself followed hot on the Cuban heels of the brilliantly sardonic 'Man Up' single, the video for which starred Laurie Kynaston, an actor who has previously played both Danny Baker and Johnny Marr (although not at the same time).
