Indie Rock for a Cloudy Day. - Casual Male: Laughter From The Beach
Joins the raucous energy of Wilco with the production aesthetic and accessibility of Mark Ronson.
Joining the raucous energy of Wilco with the production aesthetic and accessibility of Mark Ronson, Casual Male takes time off the road, most recently with Nick Murphy - aka Chet Faker - to lay the foundations for an upcoming EP. The acoustic drums with 6/4 time contribute a rolling vibe, and simulate the incessant fluctuation of waves upon the sand.
With his first solo effort, Tim Lappin conjures a sense of those gray, off-season beach days that so often serve as a perfect backdrop for personal reflection, and thoughts of old relationships, whispering among the palm trees. A pleasant counterpoint between bass and drums locks in a spacious verse, while the chorus emerges like a ray of light through the clouds. Laughter From The Beach delivers a strong debut for this up-and-coming indie artist, and finishes with hints of a heavier rock vibe with a guitar solo that is loud and awesome.
Casual Male is an Indie Rock band from Brooklyn, New York. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
