Experimental

What the Hell Did I Just Watch? The Experimental Punk Daymare that is CASSELS “Your Humble Narrator”

You know when you hit play on a track and the hairs on your body start to rise and it feels like some minute marching band is crawling across your skin? No, it’s just me? Well, maybe when you hit play on this new CASSELS video for “Your Humble Narrator” you’ll get what the hell I’m talking about. It’s like a sonic onslaught that’s both charmingly steady and fiercely unpredictable at the same time. And it seems like CASSELS wants to make us all feel really weird—whether it’s with the unsettling images, the anxious heartbeat of the percussion, the hiss of escaping gas, the strident vocals, or the captivating fuzz of the guitars. It all works together to form the noisiest, most luscious, odd, and experimental punk soundscape I’ve heard in a while.

“Your Humble Narrator” is off their recent release A Gut Feeling via God Unknown Records — get it here. Today we get to share the new video for “Your Humble Narrator” and their European tour starts tomorrow, May 12th — hit play and check the dates below.

CASSELS

I WANT TO QUALIFY, QUANTIFY, AND DISSECT A GUT FEELING
I WANT TO STRANGLE THE INTANGIBLE WITH INSURMOUNTABLE LOGIC AND MEANING
I CAN ARGUE AND I CAN REASON UNTIL THE SUNSET GROWS COLD
BUT I WANT TO SHAPE AND MOULD THE INNATE THINGS YOU CAN’T CONTROL
I WANT TO QUALIFY, QUANTIFY, AND DISSECT A GUT FEELING

EVERYTHING THAT’S BASE CAN BE DEBASED BY HUMAN HAND
THE WAY A CIRCUIT BOARD IS COMPROMISED BY A TINY GRAIN OF SAND
AND WHEN I’VE FOUND THE PERFECT PIECE TO DISRUPT AND CORRUPT YOUR WIRING
I’LL FINALLY BE ABLE TO WRITE SOMETHING WHICH IS WORTHY OF YOUR ATTENTION
I’LL FINALLY BE ABLE TO WRITE SOMETHING WHICH ALTERS YOUR PERCEPTION
I’LL FINALLY BE ABLE TO WRITE SOMETHING WHICH TEACHES YOU A LESSON

THE HIDDEN NEXUS IN YOUR SOLAR PLEXUS WILL BE EATEN BY MY WILL AND WHIM FOR DINNER AND FOR BREAKFAST
