North Wales trio CaStLeS are releasing their much-anticipated debut album Fforesteering on 18th November. With a signature sound that sits somewhere between Os Mutantes and Ennio Morricone, the group self-produced the album, which was recorded on a Zoom 16-track digital recorder inside a static caravan outside of guitarist and vocalist Cynyr’s home.
It continues many of the themes of their EP PartDepart, which was inspired by the North Wales landscape. They say: “nature is a place of comfort and reflection, to retreat to and hide from it all at times, as a subject, it can be used as an analogy to human society and our own personal nature.”
In the run up to the album’s release, they’ve shared their brand new single ‘Amcanu.’ Released in advance of the LP, on 4th November, it’s an atmospheric psych-rock number with an expansive atmosphere that completely belies the album’s humble recording conditions. Listen below.
