21.40 - 22.20 hrs

The work of Cassels is characterized by a maelstrom of erratic instrumentation and pointy, punk-inflected vocals. Over the course of two LPs – 2018’s debut album ‘Epithet’, and follow-up ‘Foreword’, a compilation of early EPs and singles – the band has operated outside of strict genre distinctions, both accumulating a loyal fanbase and winning plaudits along the way. Drawing on influences from the agit noise rock of Shellac to the rasping indie of Modest Mouse, pigeonholing the duo has been no easy task.
