Single Review: Casual Threats' 'LOFT'
The North East’s favourite post punk trio Casual Threats are back after a brief hiatus, with their new single ‘LOFT’.
Following on from their previous releases ‘Hate’ (which received a spin on Radio 1), ‘Suarez’ and debut single ‘Extra Maritime Affair’ the CT boys have delivered another slice of hard hitting, guitar driven goodness.
‘LOFT’ sees bassist Bazz take over the vocal reigns this time around, with his voice fitting the tone of the song perfectly. The politically charged track is a statement of intent from Casual Threats with the theme continuing from their debut EP ‘Life from Below’.
Arguably the best track Casual Threats have released to date, ‘LOFT’ showcases a welcome progression in the sound which they have become known for.
All in all, this is a track has just the right blend of angst and anger, perfectly mixed with an infectious chorus and commanding intro.
The upcoming video for the track is also something to behold, featuring Ollie, Conor and Bazz on tour with long-time friends and collaborators Massa Confusa. Taking in the sights and sounds of various parts of the country which saw them perform 6 dates in 6 nights, quite an achievement for any band to undertake.
‘LOFT’ will be released on Friday 8th of June on all major platforms but you can catch Casual Threats a little earlier at Evo Emerging on Saturday 9th of June 2018.
