Returning with their new album, Family, due for release on July 22nd 2012, the 10-track album from The Cast Of Cheers has received rave reviews from critics. The propulsive singles “Family” and “Animals” have already hit the radio airwaves and hooked listeners.
Of course, it would be a bit of a misnomer to call this their debut – that would be “Chariot”, the album The Cast Of Cheers recorded themselves in 3 days, which they subsequently put up on BandCamp for free. It received over 150,000 downloads and netted them a nomination at the Choice Music Prize, sending their star into rapid ascendance – their next single, the blistering “Family” saw the band championed by the influential likes of Zane Lowe, Fearne Cotton in the UK and more, while their follow-up single “Animals”, has neatly repeated the same trick.
Anticipation is therefore riding high for the next phase, and to that end, “Family” (produced by Luke Smith, ex of Clor) surely does not disappoint. As their rousing live shows have indicated, The Cast Of Cheers know their way around an aggressively infectious hook and riproaring 3 minute song, with tracks like the pummelling “Human Elevator” and the driving “Goose” – imagine an amped up Battles jamming with vintage Gang of Four and you’ll be somewhere close – demonstrating an impressive ability to write sharp, concise, math-rock tracks that pack a punch even as they are moving your hips.
Which is not to say, however, that the band only have one note. The mid-tempo “Go Getter” is a lovely, warm-hearted mini-anthem in waiting, while “Marso Sava” is a tender love song recalling Simon and Garfunkel as much as it does a jittery XTC. Closer “They Call It a Race”, meanwhile sees the band in more wistful mode, over a gorgeous, euphoric rush of rattling guitars and sweetly cooed backing vocals. It is a fine, reflective end to a fine record, and a powerful introduction to the world of The Cast Of Cheers.
