Covering something from Daft Punk’s legendary, and frankly untouchable, ‘Discovery album? That’s a pretty brave act. Let’s see how Australian Dreamwavey Indie-Electro outfit Cadillac tackle this huge, and dangerous feat.
‘Too Long’ is one of the most vocal tracks Daft Puck have ever done, so it’s probably the best choice for a band to cover and Cadillac do an admirable job. Produced as part of Le Coq Sportif and Future Classic’s series of Australian covers of classic French tracks, the cover is a chilled out Tropical take o the track. Cadillac haven’t tried to reproduce the laid back French Disco House of the original but rather gone down a new beach vibe route, probably a good idea.
Australian Indie-Electro/DiscoPop/Chillwave trio Cadillac’s self-titled EP is out now on Future Classic.
The whole record just oozes summery good times. A Slick mash-up of Disco licks and Drums with Synth Funk bass and retro keys. Add a hint of Indie-Electro guitar and some of the coolest, evocative songs you’ve heard in a while and you’ve got a killer EP. This is ‘80’s aspirational stuff, beaches and the best that include both friends and a flecked suit jacket with the sleeves rolled up. Tesla Boy’s Anton Sevidov even makes an appearance at the party, you know you’re cool when that happens!
Cadillac’s self-titles EP is out now as a double 12” featuring reMixes from The Miracles Club, Prince Rama, Marcos Cabral, Ray Mang, Daniel Bortz and Sun Glitters, or as a split digital EP, originals and reMixes.
Cadillac are a synth fuelled Australian DreamPop outfit who are gearing up for the release of their ‘Dreams’ single on Future Classic.
Featuring vocals work from Joel Bryne from Wolf & Cub, ‘Dreams’ is upbeat, fun and totally sun drenched. It’s Australian Indie-Electro enough to be recognisable so, but not samey enough to sound like everything else, which is a nice balance, as no-one does Indie-Electro like our Antipodean friends. The guitars never seem intrusive and just float over an array of late 70’s Disco synths and early ‘90’s Indie vocals, it’s an exciting, beach party, of a combination.
