Coming to the conclusion of yet another extended pan-European tour Captain Casanova did find time to get into the studio to create Futures.

Reminding of the warmth of merseybeat recordings Futures begins life as retro-’60s track, yet as the approaching four minute song progresses so that music becomes ever more compacted and consequentially delivering ever sharper elbows that jostle the audience.

The damped bass gives the low notes a softness that threads through the track, while the more jagged lead guitar gives Futures its bristling layers and drum is the impatience that harries along the song giving it the sense of compression whilst vocal flows from subtle melody to fractious growl.

For those of us who haven’t had the opportunity to get to see Captain Casanova live the follow up to the single If You Come Around Here which appeared three years ago, is a welcome addition to the collection.

Rumour has it that there may be more recorded material to surface in the next few months before they head out back on the road again in October.
