- The Cast of Cheers »
the propulsive singles 'family' and 'animals' have already stormed the radio airwaves and hooked listeners, and now, irish quartet the cast of cheers unleash their first proper album, released on school boy error / co-operative music. of course, it would be a bit of a misnomer to call this their debut - that would be 'chariot', the album the irish quartet recorded themselves in 3 days, which they subsequently put up on bandcamp for free. it received over 150,000 downloads and netted them a nomination at the choice music awards. 'family' (produced by luke smith, ex of clor) does not disappoint. as their rousing live shows have indicated, this band know their way around an aggressively infectious hook and riproaring 3 minute song, with tracks like the pummelling 'human elevator' and the driving 'goose' - imagine an amped up battles jamming with vintage gang of four and you'll be somewhere close - demonstrating an impressive ability to write sharp, concise, math-rock tracks that pack a punch even as they are moving your hips.
