Working in a style of music rarely featured, the fact that this is Kaskelott‘s third feature on the site indicates that they have more to offer than is typical in a crowded market place. The four track EP threads its way through a wide soundscape as the quartet once again demonstrate their abilities to write songs containing deep texturing and deftly handled mood changes.
My selection from Cocoon is the closer Chameleon, which is a luxurious wash of synthesiser counterbalancing the tightly packed bass and drum from which a hazy guitar delivers wafts of smoky flavour as the vocals keep all the elements in order.
It has been over a year since the Swedish indie-dance quartet Kaskelott last featured…
…due to there being no new material to hear. They have now revealed a new single – Throw Us Out – which has a summery beach vibe and given that parts of Sweden are now heading towards twenty-four hour darkness is something of a delight.
Again not seeking to stretch the mind, merely the limbs on the dance-floor, Kaskelott offer an extended arm to the listener which they are happy to accept and join in with the uncomplicated synths and hazy guitars.
