Indie-pop garage rock band CAROUSEL CASUALTIES will be launching their debut EP Madison this May 19, 2017 (Friday) at Saguijo, Makati.
TRIVIA: Their first gig was under ILVSTRADOS back when we held the reins at Sev’s Cafe, staging Students Night Out.
The band’s sound is reminiscent of British pop and garage rock music infused with post-rock, math rock, blues rock, soul and funk influences. The band released two singles namely “Safety” and “Flats,” both landing top spots on Jam 88.3’s Fresh Filter in 2016 and 2017. The former was voted #29 on the radio station’s 2016 Yearend Countdown and was featured in Japanese music blog Niche Music. The EP was produced by Nick Lazaro of Moonwlk (whose production credits include Oh, Flamingo!, Cheats, among many others) at La Balls Studio and features 6 original tracks.
Carousel Casualties was formally founded on August of 2016. The band is comprised of Emmie Villegas and Pau Villanueva on both vocals and guitar, Jot Nicanor on bass and Xavier Lucente on drums. The band has consistently performed in several prominent venues such as SaGuijo Cafe, Route 196 Bar, 19 East, Mow’s and Aloha Bar. Carousel Casualties was also recently invited by DLSU Taft’s Green Giant FM for an afternoon of radio guesting and performance. They also performed at St. Scholastica’s Annual school fair last March.
The EP Launch will feature guest performers Banna Harbera, Moonwlk, Paranoid City, Rob & Hitmen, and She’s Only Sixteen. Gates open 8PM. Entrance is P200 (inclusive of one free drink). Show starts 9PM.
