Released on Friday 23rd Feb, ‘In The Dark’ is the superb debut from OC band The Caracals. Featuring 2 active members of the slick Hanni El Khatib, we were immediately aware we were in the presence of something great when this track came into our headphones.

Perhaps an unsurprising choice given their influences, the track was mastered by Brian Lucey, the sound engineer great who previously worked on material for the Arctic Monkeys and Black Keys.

We’re digging the retro feel of this track, with fuzzy, filthy guitar riffs and a sensual rhythm the Caracals expertly blend nostalgia for retro sounds and a desire to push the boundaries of this indie-rock genre with this new bluesy classic.

We can’t wait to hear more from these guys and eagerly await a date for their debut album.
