Cap Pas Cap‘s debut album Haunted Light is out on Friday November 12th. The album launch party is the following night in the Workman’s Club, where along with Cap Pas Cap themselves Meljoann & Catscars will also be playing.
Skinny Wolves Records are excited to finally announce the release of Cap Pas Caps much anticipated debut LP, “Haunted Light”.
Dublins dark pop wonders, Cap Pas Cap, have come along way from the more krautrock-influenced new wave sounds found on their first “Not Not is Fine” 12″ EP released at the end of 2006 (which sold out in a couple of weeks, along with the Japanese re-issue selling out in days), to the hypnotic and spacey new-wave-no-wave-what-wave terrain of their ‘We Are Men’ 12″ single in 2009 (featuring remixes from Jape, Decal & thatboytim). Now, at the end of 2010, Cap Pas Cap re-appear out of the ether, with “Haunted Light”…
Cap Pas Cap make music laced with tension and unease, driven by propulsive motorik rhythms, skittering guitar, cascading synth sounds and insouciant vocals. Yet amidst the maelstrom of this dark-wave sonic assault they retain an uncanny pop sensibility at their core. While their antecedents can be traced back to a post punk milieu and the creative vapour trails that followed, Cap Pas Cap do not simply ape their heroes. Rather, through a distillation of influences they have arrived at a sound and dynamic that is wholly and unmistakably their own. Cap Pas Cap don’t just want to party, they want to party hard and deep into the cold dark night.
“Haunted Light” is released on Friday 12th of November and available on limited vinyl LP & special edition gold cassette along with download from iTunes and the usual digital retailers. The preorder special deals are still available straight from our store.
