Spring is coming - so you need the ultimate soundtrack to help you step out into the sunshine and revel in the good times. May we introduce Cantaloupe - check out the exclusive premiere of their debut album Zoetrope below.
Meet Cantaloupe - where krautrock, afrobeat and the proggiest of synth sounds blend to form a near-toxically-inebriating cocktail of shameless poppy-goodness. In a space where Django Django meets Kraftwerk, the sound of Cantaloupe is both futuristic and tropical - not to mention life-affirming and utterly joyous.
Championed by BBC 6 Music and hailing from the hotbed of musical creativity that is Nottingham Cantaloupe release Zoetrope on Monday 16 March on the excellent Hello Thor label (you should also check out Anxieteam, Fists, Hot Horizons and We Show Up On Radar).
