WATCH: The Cairos – ‘Desire’
Brisbane four-piece The Cairos, whom we got to know a little when they shared their Top 10 Tracks Of 2013 with us back in October, name-checking local boys like the Dune Rats and Kirin J Callinan, intergalactic dance robots Daft Punk, and rock legends Alice In Chains, have unveiled their latest video treat for their track Desire.
The band’s debut album, Dream of Reason, is expected to drop this May and the last we heard of it, the boys were unveiling their single Obsession, recorded at Studios 301 in the beating musical heart of Byron Bay. Both the single and the album were produced and mixed by Nick DiDia, known for his work with Aus-rock gods like Powderfinger and Karnivool, as well as alternative legends Rage Against The Machine.
Desire is the latest chance for Cairos fans to get a hint of the LP’s direction. The culmination of 12 months of songsmithing, the band have delivered a dark, noisy and ethereal record, possessing shades of 80s shoegaze, 60s psychedelic and jagged post-punk.
