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).
‘In Technicolour’ is the third single from their forthcoming second Caress EP of the same name. It sees them continue to mould influences of ‘60s soul
Motown and ‘80s indie with an emphasis on combining the dark
breazy and the danceable. Don't be fooled by it's laid back breazy summer sound for those lyrics are anything but uplifting
the opening line sees lead singer Tom casually split 'Saddened by a sombre proposal
And it feels like armageddon'. It was recorded at The Gravity Shack in South London
and is the first from a collection of songs recorded by the band in late 2017.
‘In Technicolour’ EP includes the singels 'Suffragette Look' and 'Breaking Up'
while it follows previous EP ‘You Say I Kiss Like A Girl’ 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).
‘You’re Always Miles Away’ meanwhile was the first single off the first 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".
