Castanettes - Alternative Live Act in Carlisle

Castanettes Short Info

Castanettes cover a broad spectrum of music, fusing different ideas from a collection of genres to give them a unique and diverse sound.

Their self recorded demo's 'Live For You' and ' Never Change' were picked up by BBC Introducing with 'Live For You' also receiving airplay on stations such as Amazing Radio and appearing in the top 25 tracks of the week on Tom Robinson's Fresh Faves show on BBC 6 Music.

Towards the end of their UK tour in May 2014, Castanettes came first place in the Carlisle leg of the 'Road to Isle of White Festival' competition but unfortunately could not enter the second leg due other commitments. Castanettes closed their first UK tour with an intimate acoustic performance at the HMV Carlisle store - thus being the first band to play on the premises.

In November 2014, Castanettes performed 4 tracks for Series IV of GASst and are due for release this month.

Castanettes plan to record their debut EP - and work closely with a top promotions company to get it out there as best as possible - complete with music video in early 2015, looking at an April/May release.
