The Truth: The Caress are an alternative three piece combo based in New Cross, South East London, comprising of brothers Tom Easton (guitar and vocals), Ben Easton (bass and vocals) and Sam Easton (drums and vocals). Formed in December 2015, their music is visceral and melodic, with a quintessentially British charm. They draw mainly on influences such as Phil Spector’s Wall Of Sound, ‘60s Girl bands and ‘80s indie acts. Lyrically they try to find the beauty and intrigue in the mundane and grey, through stories of youth, sex, naivety and loneliness.
Released on 25th August, ‘You’re Always Miles Away’ is their first single via fierce panda records, Musically the track is a dreamy number, with reverb-drenched tambourine, atmospheric guitars and handclaps inspired by ‘60s and Northern Soul stompers. Lyrically, ‘You’re Always Miles Away’ was written about a vacant employee, desperate to get away from the mundanity of her work and her surroundings on the checkouts and in the aisles of an anonymous British supermarket.
‘You’re Always Miles Away’ follows the singular DIY likes of ‘Why Don’t We Take A Walk By The Sea?’, ‘Animal Passion’ and their most recent self-release, the painstakingly lovely ‘A Picture By The Thames In The Winter’. ‘You’re Always Miles Away’ is taken from their debut EP ‘You Say I Kiss Like A Girl’, to be released on 15th September. In turn, ‘You Say I Kiss…’ is the fourth release as part of fierce panda’s 2017 EP Club, wherein half a dozen young roustabouts rustle up debut EP releases with the dignified support of Arts Council England.
