After touring the hell out of 2005, Cazals disappeared over the last couple of years. Known for their intricate guitar hooks and rip roaring baselines but it is lead singer Phil’s gruff voice and ever present moustache give the band that something extra, so many other bands can’t quite find.So what on earth have they been up to? Well, after touring with Babyshambles and releasing superb EP ‘Poor Innocent Boys’, then label 1234 Records gave them a call to say they had more or less folded. But for Cazals it was only a matter of time before things picked up once more.

Receiving a couple of messages from French cool kid label Kitsuné, their tracks featured on a couple of the wonderful Maison compilations albums and it was only a matter of time before they became Kitsuné signed hot prospect.

With guitarist Daniel managing the band and bassist Martin producing their recently completed album, Cazals like to keep things in house, which combined with Kitsuné’s family feel has made for an excellent mix. Too bad they haven’t got a graphic artist in their ranks as recent album art has been left wanting, but then if you’re deemed good enough for to support Daft Punk on tour, things can’t be all bad.

New single ‘Somebody Somewhere’ is out 5th May with debut album ‘What Of Our Future?’ hitting stores on 26th May.
