This week we turn away from the incredible, gargantuan sound created by the Inland Sea and focus on the superbly polished and remarkably tight music of future indie stars, The Cairos. This Brisbane based four-piece has come a long way since their early days winning battle of the bands competitions. Now with two stellar EP's to their name, the Lost at Sea EP and 2011's Summer Catalogue EP, it looks like they're ready to to enter the mainstream's consciousness with the soon to be released Colours Like Features EP. A couple of weeks ago the band released the video for new single, 'We All Buy Stars,' a jam that will have you fist pumping with joy to the energetic chorus.
There's a lot to like about a group this young that seems to have everything together. Alistar Richardson's voice conveys that he's ready to be one of the exciting leading men the Australian music scene so desperately needs. Don't believe me? Listen to 'Batman' from the Lost at Sea EP. Richardson has that same attitude in his voice that comes through in many of Alex Kapranos' (Franz Ferdinand) performances. That's a winning attitude. The band appears to be a well oiled machine, there's little you could find to fault in their performance for, like I said, The Cairos' sound is remarkably tight. You'd think they had been doing this for well over a decade.
What do you need to do now? Have a listen to their EP's, listen to 'We All Buy Stars,' fall in love with their music, buy Colours Like Features EP when it's released and then, if you just so happen to be in a city they tour through... go see them live and support Australian music!
