Cassels is London-based duo and brothers, Jim and Loz Beck. They write experimental, punk-infused garage-rock, which is underpinned by part sung, part spoken word lyrics they describe as "an intentionally muddy mix of experience, opinion, red herrings and fiction”.

Today the duo are announcing their upcoming new record, A Gut Feeling, alongside lead single ‘Mr Henderson Coughs’ — a janky, off-kilter, Shellac-esque head bopper with repetition at its core that details "a story of grey areas, extenuating circumstances, and misguided attempts at redemption. It could be seen as darkly comic, but that depends on how dark your sense of humour is”.

The track’s focus on a fictional character is a thematic style that can be found throughout the album: “I found that setting myself the brief of writing character pieces offered a nice way of sneaking quite personal things into the songs without being explicitly autobiographical” says guitarist and vocalist Jim. “I think writing can be a great way of unearthing hang ups and becoming acquainted with your own anxieties. In the case of this album, I found an additional pleasure in exploring these anxieties through the vehicle of third person narratives”.

‘Mr Henderson Coughs’ is a truly unique and innovative record that signals the quality of Cassels’ upcoming album. The single is released on 30th July and the album is due for release early 2022 via God Unknown Records alongside the band’s headline UK tour.
