CaStLeS - Alternative Psychedelic Rock Electronic Indie Live Act in Snowdonia

CaStLeS Short Info

CaStLeS’ music swirls between Os Mutantes, Ennio Morricone and the mountains of Snowdonia, a delightfully hypnotic voodoo groove with reverb soaked melodies.

Brothers Dion and Cynyr Hamer formed the band back in 2008 following many musical project manifestations as a duo, they were later joined by former Derwyddon Dr Gonzo bassist Calvin Thomas. Based in Snowdonia, Wales, their early demo releases received radio plays on BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio Wales & Cymru as well as a TV appearance on S4C.

The band took a brief hiatus in 2011 whilst Cynyr and Dion were touring Europe and America with Welsh rock band We Are Animal.
During this time CaStLeS were writing new material. In early 2015 the band released two Welsh language singles a week apart. Argau and Ar Agor were positively received and resulted in the band being asked to record a radio session for BBC Radio Cymru's C2 show and a live performance on S4C TV's Ochr 1.

These releases along with their debut EP 'PartDepart' earned CaStLeS
their debut performance on the BBC Introducing stage in August 2016​ at Reading & Leeds Festival.
