Q&A with Kasket Club:
Casablanca Sunset: How did you come up with the name ‘Kasket Club’ ?Kasket Club: The name Kasket Club is pretty random. We were literally hitting “random article” on Wikipedia to come up with inspiration for a band name, and both “Kasket” and “Club” came up individually. Since words sounded good together we went for it in the spirit of indie randomness.
Casablanca Sunset: Who are some of your musical influences?
Kasket Club: This changes a lot, but acts that has stayed with me from the beginning are Tame Impala and Toro y Moi much because of their impressive ways of tastefully renewing their sound every now and then while still remaining in tact with their musical expression. However, acts like Phoenix, M83, MGMT and Parcels has a huge standing as well.
Casablanca Sunset: How would you describe your sound to someone that has never listened to your music before?
Kasket Club: Somewhere within the indie pop genre with a bit of disco and weirdness.
Casablanca Sunset: How has Kasket Club’s sound developed over the last 8 years?
Kasket Club: I think it started shifting from chillwave into cleaner indie pop at one point. I’m currently trying to get the weirdness and playful elements of chilwave back into the mix while not caring too much about defining the sound. I’m trying to make music that I would want to listen to myself, that’s it.
Casablanca Sunset: What are some new artists you are listening to right now?
Kasket Club: I really dig Yuno, Knox White and everything on the label Toothfairy
Casablanca Sunset: Which genre will have a big 2020?
Kasket Club: Hopefully there will be a lot more indie disco!
Casablanca Sunset: What does your songwriting & production process look like?
Kasket Club: It usually starts with a lot of resampling of guitars, bass and synth until it sounds full and interesting. Then adding vocals for dynamics.
Casablanca Sunset: Upcoming plans for 2020?
Kasket Club: Just trying to get out as much music as possible!
Thanks guys, look forward to hearing more from you down the road!
