Wake The President tour dates
Glasgow four-piece Casual Sex are responsible for a fair few raised eyebrows in 2013, not only for their chosen name but for the welcome realisation of the musical promise they first showed via those early split seven inches on Scottish label We Can Still Picnic Records.
They have a singer whose voice channels Lou Reed’s droll spirit and some of Edwyn Collins’s arch wit, and the way their players negotiate their instruments suggests an affinity with all manner of pop and rock styles and eras from glam to white reggae.
NME have compared their creeping Roxy Music-style sound to The Long Blondes and Mark E Smith.
