Do not dismiss new sensation Caan as simple electro pop - his solo work covers far more than just the one genre.
Former bassist with Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, Caan's solo material is a fantastic fusion of modern electro and pop noir. The haunting music is reminiscent of an early Depeche Mode and even has a somewhat Blink 182 feel, especially in the track ‘Now Hear This My Friends'.
However, it is easy to tell that Caan has stuck to his UK Garage roots, more apparently in his new track 'In To The Night', blending the genres and creating a new fresh contemporary sound of his own. His music layers melodic and expressive synths on top of speeding drumbeats; producing dark hypnotic music, accompanied by heartfelt lyrics - topped with an undeniably excellent voice.
The young one man sensation has been noticed not only for his voice but for his looks too, having turned heads at i-D and Faded Glamour magazines. Having sold out London’s XOYO in February, he is will also be touring the UK from June and as well as playing Dingwalls, London on May 31 - returning to his home town in Camden.
His newest single ‘In To The Night’ is to be released June 11. Check out the track below.
