Chasing Cara

Taking to the coast with their punk, Lo-Fi, surf-pop, The Music Manual introduce to you, Chasing Cara.

Formed by lifelong friends Matt O'Riley and Jamo Curtis, the quartet from Surrey have two EP’s under their belt, a small, concentrated number for a band who have been together for three years.

With up-tempo anthems sitting somewhere between The Ramones and Beach Boys, there are definite signs of note taking from contemporary American artists such as Wavves and FIDLAR.

West Coast, taken from their debut EP, Greetings From Chasing Cara: Part 1 (No prizes for guessing the title of its follow up) is a nod to the previously mentioned contempories of the US.

Mix Tape from their follow up, offers pounding drums and a chorus that everyone can sing along to, again playing on the surf rock inclinations picked up from their first offering. Other tracks such as, She Don’t Surf incorporates light-hearted harmonies, giving it a retro feel, with Curtis also unleashing some tasty chords, placing smiles on all who listen.

An energetic live band full of fun, check out their recent, charming homemade video for Mix Tape, Twitter endorsed by none other than Honeyblood!
