CAAN – Into The Night (Camouflage Recordings)

I only found out who Caan was a month ago. I was in Archway, waiting for my friend to hurry up in the shop, when I saw this guy leaning on his bike next to me. I thought he was waiting to go into the shop so I completely ignored him until he asked me if I had fb (facebook). I really thought he was another one of those annoying guys from archway, but I said yes anyway. Next thing I knew he was furiously scribbling on a flyer. He handed it to me and said to check him out on fb and to come to his gig at Dingwalls. He also said he liked my swag!! Well after that weird meeting I couldn’t help but check him out.

Although, I couldn’t make it to the gig in the end due to exams and coursework I did get his new single ‘Into the Night’. From the time the first droning synths came in, the feeling of enchantment took over. When Caan starts singing, his voice along with the 2-step beats, cavernous bass, droning synths and strings captivate you; it literally feels like you’re in your own little bubble. This is the former Ou Est. Le Swimming Pool Singer’s 2nd single release since he has gone solo. After just one single release under his belt, Caan sold out London’s XOYO in February. He was confirmed to play the Great Escape, Secret Garden festival and London’s Dingwalls on 31st May, before embarking on a UK tour. The upbeat dance feel to the song makes it hard for you not to get up and dance and I can tell it’s going to be big this summer. Caan is definitely destined for big things this year.

Into the Night is out on Monday 11th June make sure you go and get a copy and show your support.
