I’ve been meaning to do a post on The Casanova Wave for a while now and what better time than with the sun currently shining over Ireland’s normally dismal skyline.
The Casanova Wave is the solo project of Waterford man Brian McCartan who produces a sprightly mix of jangly, glitter-covered electronica through a clever combination of synths, guitars, drums and just about everything else. McCartan’s creations are a positive blend of chirpy beats, sounding like hand claps and smiley faces, with a tremendously danceable element throughout. In short, the perfect soundtrack to a sunny day.
I recently caught the live act at the Cock and Bull 5 in the Grand Social and I’m glad to report the warmth present on the EP was just as effective on stage.
You can catch The Casanova Wave at Workman’s Club, Dublin on Sat March 19th and Vantastival in Louth on May Bank Holiday weekend.
Listen to the album below or part ways with €5 and it’s yours for download over on Bandcamp.
