Step back in time with Cascando, the Limerick band with a sound so authentically 60s, you'll swear they've got a time machine. The group is set to release their new single, "Jimmy Boy," on November 29th, capturing the essence of blues, rock, and folk in a riveting blend that evokes the spirits of The Beatles, The Animals, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Bob Dylan.
Having already garnered acclaim from Hotpress and Breaking Tunes for their debut "Canyon Music," Cascando is creating waves with a sound that's irresistibly classic yet refreshingly novel. As leaders in the new wave of the Irish Invasion, their upcoming single marks a significant milestone, being the first off their much-anticipated EP, "In Absence of Trees."
"Jimmy Boy" is more than just a song; it's a narrative journey through the trial and sentencing of its protagonist, set to the tune of alluring harmonies and piercing focus. Recorded live in September, the track features the percussive talents of Hugh Cleary-Ward and the innovative flute stylings of Dan Walsh (‘Fixity’ & ‘The Bonk’), adding a fresh twist to the revered roots rock formula.
The anticipation for their forthcoming EP is building with a headlining tour across Ireland, with stops in Galway, Cork, Dublin, and a special release night party in their hometown of Limerick at Pharmacia on November 30th.
Comprising nearly a dozen artists and led by five key members, Cascando has been likened to a musical force that makes you want to "square dance and carve wood." Their passion for country and blues, blended with modern folk and soul, creates a sound that is at once nostalgic and pioneering, crafting a new chapter in Ireland's rock anthology.
Don't miss the chance to experience the past and present collide with Cascando's "Jimmy Boy" and their upcoming EP, "In Absence of Trees."
