South African alternative rockers Caelo have released their debut single All You Need. The breakneck new single showcases fuzzed-up riffs and grunge-pop hooks and marks the arrival of a hugely talented new rock band.
Since forming in mid-2014, Caelo have been busy making a name for themselves on the fertile Cape Town music scene. Initially an experimental two-piece, frontman Joel Bronner and drummer Michael Dickens soon expanded their ranks to include guitarist-turned-bassist Mat Winfield and developed a sonic blueprint influenced by shapeshifting rock heroes like Biffy Clyro, Sonic Youth & Muse. The trio’s knack for dextrous guitar work is balanced by an ear for singalong melodies that means their pummelling rock comes sugar-coated with pop choruses that quickly stick in the brain. Drawing on punk, pop, math-rock & metal, All You Need is an instant anthem that will sound equally at home in a festival field or sweaty rock club.
